‘Labyrinth of Lies’ to be Germany’s Academy Award Entry for 2016
The Nuremberg trials, held right after WWII ended, are famous, and the 1961 Eichmann trial in Jerusalem is known to most. Arguably just as important were the Frankfurt Auschwitz trials, which also took place in the early 1960s but which are practically unknown. Labyrinth of Lies sheds light on this little known story.
Upon learning that many former Nazis returned to their pre-war lives with no penalty, an ambitious German prosecutor (Alexander Fehling “Homeland” 2015) vows to bring them to justice.
Q&A to follow the film with director Giulio Ricciarelli.
