Director: Vanessa Lapa
Grand winner of the Israeli Academy Awards and winner of three major awards at the Israeli Documentary Awards, Speer Goes to Hollywood presents the enigma of Albert Speer: the highest-ranking Nazi in Nuremberg who, despite his crimes, was spared the death sentence. Speer Goes to Hollywood is the film that Speer never made. Based on months of audio cassettes recorded by screenwriter Andrew Birkin, it features Speer’s callous attempt to whitewash his past in a feature film. The rare archival materials selected to illustrate his account offer us a chance to look beyond his words and ponder whether this eloquent but ultimately self-serving narcissist was recording history – or recording his story.
