Claude Lanzmann: Spectres of the Shoah (aka Lanzmann)

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

'Lanzmann' explores the arduous 12-year journey that led to the creation of one of the most important films of our time, 'Shoah'.
Completed to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the release of 'Shoah' – Claude Lanzmann’s nine-and-a-half-hour examination of the Holocaust of European Jews, this documentary reveals for the first time the trials and tribulations the French iconoclast director faced. Notably, the film features an array of previously unseen outtake footage that was shot during the creation of 'Shoah', to illustrate Lanzmann’s journey from the bright-eyed journalist of 1973 to the world-weary auteur of 1985.
