Synopsis

Enrique Sanchez Lansch directs this documentary that examines the history of the Berlin Philharmonic during the years 1933-1945. Using archive material alongside testimony from witnesses present at the time, the film seeks to shine a light on the members of the orchestra itself, charting their destinies, and examining the role they played in Nazi Germany's propaganda machine.
