Unfortunately, this film will not be playing anywhere near me, but anyone who lives near one of the theaters showing it, should take the tiem to view it. This documentary needs to make its rounds to historians, gentiles, and Jews. The film was made to clarify and preserve the truth about the lifestyles of the upper, middle, and lower class Jews in Nazi Germany. The history of these men and women was tarnished when the first four Nazi films were found; we need everyone to know the truth. Below are some notes on the film from the studio; you can also view more information at AFilmUnfinished.com.
At the end of WWII, 60 minutes of raw film, having sat undisturbed in an East German archive, was discovered. Shot by the Nazis in Warsaw in May 1942, and labeled simply “Ghetto,” this footage quickly became a resource for historians seeking an authentic record of the Warsaw Ghetto. However, the later discovery of a long-missing reel, inclusive of multiple takes and cameraman staging scenes, complicated earlier readings of the footage. A FILM UNFINISHED presents the raw footage in its entirety, carefully noting fictionalized sequences (including a staged dinner party) falsely showing “the good life” enjoyed by Jewish urbanites, and probes deep into the making of a now-infamous Nazi propaganda film.
A FILM UNFINISHED is a film of enormous importance, documenting some of the worst horrors of our time and exposing the efforts of its perpetrators to propel their agenda and cast it in a favorable light.
