At the end of WWII. 60 minutes of raw film were discovered in an East German archive. The film carefully notes fictionalized sequences (including a staged dinner party) falsely showing "the good life" enjoyed by Jewish urbanities.
A Film Unfinished tackles a propaganda film shot by the Nazis in 1942, which portrayed life in the Warsaw Ghetto in a falsely positive light. Hersonski interviews ghetto survivers and some of the film's original cameraman to shed fascinating light on The Nazi State.
