Introduction by Mart Sander.
The Third Reich cinema was a heavily censored industry and, at the same time, longed to be a German dream factory. It produced, among others, the Nazi blockbuster “Münchhausen”, at the request of Joseph Goebbels. It established its own celebrity star system and used the latest marketing tools.
We look at these films and the people behind them, and how stereotypes of the “enemy” and values of love and hate managed to be planted in viewers’ minds through films.
