Council of the Gods
Filmmaker Kurt Maetzig holds up a complex mirror to World War II-era German society with this moral drama based on the true stories of international corporations who made a hearty profit by conducting dubious research for Nazi scientists. At once an unflinching look at the war and a powerful piece of propaganda for the German Democratic Republic, Council of the Gods addresses many powerful themes that still resonate over fifty-years after it was originally produced.
