Filmmaker Michaël Prazan crafted this electrifying, comprehensive look at the trial that changed the way people related to the Holocaust. With detailed accounts of Eichmann’s capture, the ensuing courtroom drama, and reactions around the world, this immensely compelling documentary reveals one fresh new insight after another. Blacklisted filmmaker Leo Hurwitz was hired as director of the extraordinary television coverage of the Eichmann trial. Drawing on his singular expertise in the field, Hurwitz trained and directed the Israeli crew, called every shot of the television coverage, and cut it live for public broadcast in Israel and around the world.

Please note that WE MEET AT THE MEMBERSHIP DESK BEFORE THE FILM. When you enter the Burns lobby go to the left it is by the stairs. This will be a crowded event and I suggest arriving at least 1/2 hour early. If you do not meet at the desk then look for me in the lobby afterwards. If you can not locate the membership desk, please ask any member of the Burns staff for the membership desk. Please do not ask them for the meet up group as we are not part of the Burns staff but a film group that meets at the Burns. There are only 3 counters/desks in the lobby at the Burns, the membership desk is the one by the stairs and is NOT the one not selling popcorn or tickets.
