Product Description

This powerful, award-winning German film tells the story of one of the greatest challenges the legal system has ever faced. Dr. Josef Mengele, the infamous Angel of Death in Auschwitz, and one of the most wanted Nazi war criminals, turns himself in after 30 years in hiding to tell his truth to the world. Thus ensues a battle between conscience and evil...

After the Truth presents us with Mengeles hypothetical trial, which forces us to review his guilt, especially in the context of the wider attitudes towards the dignity of human life in German society. The responsibility of our sense of right and wrong is mirrored in the film by attorney Peter Rohm, whose idealistic belief in the legal system conflicts heavily with his emotional resistance to defending such a monster. The viewer is presented with Josef Mengele the man, flesh and blood, and must hear him out as he quite emotionally yet rationally states the reasons for his work, and his supposed mercy that he imposed on his patients. At the very least the viewer must consider the man, monster or not, and his motives.
German with English and Spanish subtitles.
