HITLER & STALIN – PORTRAIT OF HOSTILITY

Germany | 2009

Synopsis
They never met face to face. They were the representatives of an age-old animosity that soon threatened to tear the world apart.
They ascended to the leadership of European dictatorships whose bloody deeds proved worse than any the world had ever known in terms of cruelty and the will to power. Hitler and Stalin. Demon twins, ranging amongst the worst exterminators of human beings ever to live. Opposite poles in terms of ideology – yet brothers with regard to the blood spilled on their account. How did Hitler and Stalin rise to power? What accounts for the similarities and the differences between the two systems and dictatorships? How did they size one another up, how did they deceive each other? This documentary essay ventures into the universe of terror built by Hitler and Stalin. A visual montage incorporating stock footage and film shot on location on the sites of the historical events, creates a tense and troubling dialog between the past and the present.
