A Film Unfinished

The atrocities of the Holocaust have been well documented on film before in dramas and documentaries, but few films have taken viewers behind the scenes like this one. And it  almost never saw the light of day because it wasn’t even discovered until the end of WWII. It’s basically a propaganda film that the Nazis made to show the world just how ‘good’ life was for the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto, but it aso features stark images of the horrible reality of their lives filmed for the Nazi leaders’ secret enjoyment. Watching the multiple takes that the Nazis went through to get their lies on film is fascinating and horrifying.
