Nuremberg Film Premiering Next Week

I picked up a lady by the name of Sandra Schulberg tonight, and she mentioned a fascinating documentary that she has been working on.   Her father originally made it for the U.S. government during the Nuremberg trials, but it has never been shown here.  She has restored it, and it opens next week at the Film Forum.  From the film's website:
One of the greatest courtroom dramas in history, Nuremberg: Its Lesson For Today shows how the four allied prosecution teams — from the United States, Great Britain, France, and the Soviet Union — built their case against the top Nazi leaders. As documented in the film, the trial established the "Nuremberg principles," laying the groundwork for all subsequent prosecutions, anywhere in the world, for crimes against the peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide.

Sounds like an interesting film.  Check it out if your in the city next week.  I plan to.

  1. I think there is a total of one theater in Houston which plays independent films. And it is clear on the other side of town...and the seats smell funny... but I might manage to go see this one if it plays there.
