France, United States | 2022; 1948/2010 | Jean-Christophe Klotz; Stuart Schulberg
Two documentaries about the post-WWII Nuremberg trials. Filmmakers for the Prosecution tells the thrilling story of how brothers Budd and Stuart Schulberg, serving under movie director John Ford in the OSS (Office of Strategic Services), tracked down the films used to convict top Nazis after WWII. Newly-discovered footage shows where they found secret caches of motion pictures, including salt mines and haystacks. The films they unearthed were compiled and presented at the International Military Tribunal in Nuremberg—the first time in history that motion pictures were introduced as legal evidence in a trial. These films also have shaped our understanding of the Holocaust to this day. Nuremberg: Its Lesson for Today is Sandra Schulberg and Josh Waletzky’s remastered version of Stuart Schulberg’s Nuremberg, a 1948 documentary record of the Nuremberg trials that was commissioned by the U.S. government but never released in America. “Riveting…More powerful than any fictional courtroom drama could hope to be.” –New York Magazine.
