Brutality in Stone

West Germany, 1960 (MIFF 1962)

Director: Peter Schamoni

An essay on the official architecture of the National Socialist State with its stark style reflecting the inhumanity of the party's philosophy. The past is emphasized by ghostly snatches of the voices that once roared affirmation of power and victory.
