Funny, Fucked Up, Frightening
Look Who's Back, directed by David Wnendt, paints a grim and disturbing portrayal of Hitler returning to contemporary Germany. The film interlaces actors with scripts and real people thinking they are a part of a documentary. The latter offer a frightening glimpse of how the general public would react when confronting the past. More the 300 hours of interviews were shot. The short video above poignantly discusses the role of satire and comedy to convey the serious lessons of history and how easy it is to forget the past.
