Finding the truth behind the once-indomitable Nazi propaganda machine is the quest at the center of Yael Hersonski’s amazing documentary. Beginning with the lies - an hour-long movie shot in 1942 to show the ‘humane conditions’ in the Warsaw Ghetto, Hersonski intersperses 30 minutes of recently found outtakes that show how those images were manipulated and manufactured. In another moving layer, survivors of the Warsaw Ghetto comment on the images they see - and the horrors Das Ghetto tried to hide from the world. “...what is so gratifying about A Film Unfinished, which is often painful to watch, is its ethical insistence that there are true things in the world, and that it is necessary for us to know them.” - Manohla Dargis, New York Times. 89 min.
