A Film Unfinished (Movie Watch)

At the end of WWII, 60 minutes of raw film, having sat undisturbed in an East German archive, was discovered. Shot by the Nazis in Warsaw in May 1942, and labeled simply “Ghetto,” this footage quickly became a resource for historians seeking an authentic record of the Warsaw Ghetto. However, the later discovery of a long-missing reel, inclusive of multiple takes & cameraman staging scenes, complicated earlier readings of the footage. Presenting the raw footage in its entirety, carefully noting fictionalized sequences (including a staged dinner party) falsely showing “the good life” enjoyed by Jewish urbanites, probing deeper into the making of a now-infamous Nazi propaganda film. This is a film of enormous importance, documenting some of the worst horrors of our time & exposing the efforts of its perpetrators to propel their agenda & cast it in a favorable light.
