Tells the story of Nureyev’s life in Russia up to and including his defection to the West.

Harlan: Hitler’s Other Filmmaker

Veit Harlan was, along with Leni Riefenstahl, Nazi Germany’s most successful film director, remembered today for his infamous Jew Suss.

This documentary film, the first account of his life and career, draws on his extensive film catalogue, including previously unreleased materials from the Harlan family’s private archive.
