Die Dunkelheitherz

FYC: "Die Dunkelheitherz" - Leni Riefenstahl's long-lost adaptation of Joseph Conrad classic, in which Gestapo agent Eckhart Mahler is sent up the Vorskla to find and kill Colonel Kurchner, a high ranking Nazi camp kommandant who has 'gone native' and is refusing to exterminate subhumans in his concentration camp in the Ukraine. Unmissable genocidal propaganda master-piece, hailed for its innovative use of dolly shots and deep focus, as well as the fact that the original celluloid was partially rendered from the bodies of gypsies.
