SYNOPSIS

Nazi-cinema was a state-controlled industry, subject to rigid political and cultural censorship. At the same time, it aspired to be “Great Cinema”; it viewed itself as an ideological and aesthetic alternative to Hollywood. A German dream factory.

Rüdiger Suchsland’s Hitler’s Hollywood takes a closer look at the roughly 1000 feature films made in Germany between 1933-1945, examining how stereotypes of the “enemy” and values of love and hate managed to be planted, into the heads of the German people, through the cinema screens.
