FILM DECEPTION OF NAZI PROPAGANDA IN 'A FILM UNFINISHED'

Next October 28, at 8.15 pm, a new session of the series The Documentary of the Month will be screened in Alicante Town University Venue. This time the film screened will be A Film Unfinished, by director Yael Hersonski, a documentary that shows the film depiction hidden behind some pictures recorded with a sole purpose: Nazi propaganda. The documentary will be showed in its original version in English, Hebrew, Polish, German and Yiddish, with subtitles in Spanish.

After World War II, a mysterious reel of about sixty minutes labelled with the word Ghetto appears in a file of Eastern Germany. Recorded by the Nazis in Warsaw in May 1942, the reel was quickly used by many historians as real evidence of life in Jewish ghettos. But more than forty years later, another reel with repeated shots of the first film is discovered and in it a cameraman is seen preparing the production of each action. Yael Hersonski recovers this material and proves the film deception.

Yael Hersonski works as a producer and freelance film editor since she graduated in Sam Spiegel Film & Television School. She has worked as a content director in a weekly programme about documentaries in Channel 10 and she currently works editing documentaries and fiction programmes for Israel television. A Film Unfinished (translated as Gueto in Spanish) is her first full-length documentary.
