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. Hitler’s Hollywood tells the story of one of the most important and dramatic period in the German cinema history. Once again, what does cinema know that we don’t know?

Rüdiger Suchsland

Rüdiger Suchsland is a German journalist, film critic and director. Before Hitler’s Hollywood, he directed a documentary feature about the cinema of the Weimar Republic, From Caligari to Hitler (2015).
