The propaganda film PATRIOTEN tells the story of the pilot officer Peter Thomas, who crashed with his plane in France in 1918 and was picked up by a travelling theatre troupe who thought he was a French deserter.

Zeitbilder. Filme des Nationalsozialismus
In no other period of German film history have more people visited the cinema than in the years of National Socialism. In addition to Nazi-specific formats such as the “heroic reportage”, genres such as melodrama and period film also experienced their heyday. In his book Rainer Rother investigates the peculiarities of the language of film and the effect of these productions.

Guests: Rainer Rother (Deutsche Kinemathek Berlin) and Christiane von Wahlert (former CEO of SPIO and FSK)
