From Academy Award Winning Producer David Puttnam comes the most controversial documentary about Hitler ever made: Swastika. (In fact, it was banned at the Cannes Film Festival.) Utilizing intimate color home movie footage shot by Eva Braun, this presents the private life of a dictator. The movie interweaves rare propaganda films, which presented Hitler as he wanted to be seen -- consoling war widows and frolicking with young children. Director Philippe Mora combines these materials to tell the story of Hitler's rise and fall, from the formation of the Nazi state through the end of WWII. Mora lets the images speak for themselves. As the opening credits state, ''If Hitler is dehumanized and shown only as a devil, any future Hitler may not be recognized, simply because he is a human being."Additional documentary series include:Hitler: Anecdotes, Myths and Lies (aka Hitler: The Untold Story)U-Boats: Hitler's Sharks
