‘Really, really creepy’ Nazi 3-D films discovered

Post by Strawberry on Sat Feb 19, 2011 12:25 am


An Australian filmmaker has discovered two perfectly preserved 3-D films the Nazis made 75 years ago as part of their propaganda machine.

Tucked on a shelf in the Federal Archives in Berlin, the 30-minute films were part of “the Nazi effort to control minds,” Philippe Mora told the Star on Thursday.

“It’s scary stuff. They were more advanced at doing it than we even knew.”

As part of his research into a documentary on how Nazi Germany’s Third Reich obsessively recorded itself, Mora discovered an intense fascination with 3-D imagery.

“It was a huge fad in Nazi Germany. They had 3-D magazines. They shot everything, the Olympics, everything, on 3-D film, as well as regular film.”

Persistent digging led him to the 1936 black-and-white “documentaries” So Real You Can Touch It and Six Girls Roll Into the Weekend, both of them “hilarious, but really, really creepy.”

It will be really interesting to watch these when they become available! It's true, most Germans were not political. They were oblivious.
