CINEMA’S EXILE: FROM HITLER TO HOLLYWOOD – When Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933, one of his earliest actions was to ban Jews from working in that country's storied film industry, widely regarded at that time as the most creative in the world. This film traces the experiences of the exiles who fled their homeland and came to Hollywood as it also examines their impact on both German and American cinema.
All Cinema 2 at the Wolf films are FREE and open to the public.
