The Meaning of Hitler Documentary Movie Trailer HD - Plot synopsis: The latest documentary from directors Petra Epperlein and Michael Tucker (Gunner Palace, Karl Marx City) is a provocative interrogation of our culture’s fascination with Hitler and Nazism set against the backdrop of the current rise of white supremacy, the normalization of antisemitism and the weaponization of history itself.
The film traces Hitler’s movements, his rise to power and the scenes of his crimes as historians and writers, including Deborah Lipstadt, Martin Amis, Saul Friedlander, and famed Nazi hunters Beate and Serge Klarsfeld, weigh in on the lasting impact of his virulent ideology.
As fears of authoritarianism and fascism abound, the film explores the myths and misconceptions of our understanding of the past, and the difficult process of coming to terms with it at a time in our history when it seems more critical than ever.
An IFC Films release.
