Collaging nonfiction materials, newsreel footage, and Hurwitz's brilliantly-shot scenes, Strange Victory powerfully documents the racism and anti-Semitism of postwar America. Images of stickers saying “Save America – Don't Buy from Jews,” signs that read “For Whites Only,” and photos of Ku Klux Klan lynchings are juxtaposed with footage of Nazi rallies and concentration camp inmates. This seldom-shown work, now beautifully restored from the producer’s original 1948 nitrate interpositive, landed its director on Hollywood’s blacklist. Strange Victory is now ripe for rediscovery.
"The essential documentary of our moment. Strange Victory can rekindle our energies, without a moment to lose." -- David Bordwell http://goo.gl/FHVbLb
