SPEER GOES TO HOLLYWOOD

Director: VANESSA LAPA
ISRAEL
2020, 97'

Albert Speer is an enigma. The highest-ranking Nazi in Nuremberg to be spared the death sentence, Speer was one of Hitler’s closest confidants and his chief architect, tasked with rebuilding Berlin as the capital of a global empire. As Reichsminister of Munitions, Speer was responsible for 12 million slave labourers. And yet, even now, he has the reputation of being “the good Nazi” – a myth he carefully constructed himself.

Vanessa Lapa is a journalist who has produced over 100 news reports and documentaries for Israeli TV. In 2006, she founded Realworks, an independent production house specialising in documentary film. Its projects include «Olmert: Concealed Documentary» (2009), about Israel’s former prime minister, and «The Decent One» (2014), a glimpse into the mind of SS chief Heinrich Himmler, based on his personal diaries.
