First ever European DVD Release of this astonishing and much sought after Hitler documentary feature. The renowned German filmmaker, Lutz Becker, directed The Double Headed Eagle as a means of allowing Germans to understand and come to terms with the historical phenomenon that was Hitler. It is a dramatic documentary, tracing the rise of Hitler and the Nazi Party through the social chaos of the Weimar Republic. Swastika is the most controversial documentary about Hitler and the Nazis ever made. Using propaganda footage and colour home movies made by Hitler's fiance Eva Braun, Swastika portrays the human side of Adolf Hitler. That a man can orchestrate the Holocaust and yet still enjoy passing the time on a sun lounger makes Hitler more real, and more chilling. Told exclusively through archive footage Swastika leaves you to draw your own conclusions about Hitler.... man or monster. 80 Minutes of Special Features including contributions from the Director and Producers. Special features include: Historian Introduction, Swastika revisited - The filmmakers discus that making of Swastika, Interview with producer Sanford Lieberson, Ludovic Kennedy interviews Albert Speer and Lutz Becker, Colour film in Nazi Germany Featurette, Manipulation and Nazi Propoganda featurette, and Puncturing the myth of Leni Riefenstahl (audio programme).
