Swastika + In Conversation

Charting the slide of a nation into Nazism, Swastika utilises archive material, including original 16mm footage, to explore Hitler’s rise to power. The film’s director (Philippe Mora) co-writer (Lutz Becker) and producers (Lord David Puttnam and Sandy Lieberson) discuss the events that drove them to create this documentary and the divided opinion it received from the public. This in depth discussion reflects on the film’s resonance with today’s society and delivers a chilling warning to those that believe democracy is infallible.
