Though almost forgotten today, Veit Harlan was one of Nazi Germany's most notorious filmmakers. His most perfidious film was the treacherous anti-Semitic propaganda film Jew Süss-required viewing for all SS members. An unrepentant and blindly obsessive craftsman, no figure-save for Leni Riefenstahl-is as closely associated with the cinema of the Holocaust years. (Harlan's 1945 epic Kolberg was the basis for Inglourious Basterds' pivotal film-within-a-film Stolz Der Nation.) Harlan - In the Shadow of "Jew Süss" is an eye-opening examination of World War II film history as well as the story of a German family from the Third Reich to the present, one that is marked by reckoning, denial and liberation.
