Imaginary Witness: Hollywood and the Holocaust

Posted by Walton Lesch

Rating  :  6.5

Year  :   2004

Duration  :   1h 32m

Daniel Anker’s 90-minute documentary takes on over 60 years of a very complex subject: Hollywood’s complicated, often contradictory relationship with Nazi Germany and the Holocaust. The questions it raises go right the very nature of how film functions in our culture, and while hardly exhaustive, Anker’s film makes for a good, thought provoking starting point.
