About "Imaginary Witness: Hollywood and the Holocaust"
Why was the Hollywood filmmaking community so slow to respond as Hitler rose to power in Germany and the Third Reich marched across Europe? And why, after the war, were there few signs of the atrocities in feature films for almost two decades? Hollywood's ambiguous relationship with the horrors of the war are revealed in AMC's controversial, insightful and ultimately fascinating 90-minute documentary, "Imaginary Witness: Hollywood And The Holocaust," narrated by Gene Hackman. From the Oscar®-nominated and Emmy award-winning filmmaker Daniel Anker, the documentary features rare footage and interviews with Steven Spielberg, Sidney Lumet and Rod Steiger, in his last interview given just weeks before his death.
