SNEAK PREVIEW. Burghart Klaussner (The White Ribbon) and Ronald Zehrfeld (Phoenix NCJF’15) star in this riveting historical thriller chronicling the herculean efforts of German District Attorney Fritz Bauer to capture and bring to justice Nazi war criminal Adolph Eichmann. With death threats mounting and government intelligence services (in his own office!) employing noxious methods to shut him down, Bauer, a German-Jew, refuses to back down amid a post-war climate where Nazi perpetrators remain at large or newly ensconced in government or corporate jobs. Kraume’s propulsive direction and moody jazz soundtrack give the sinister proceedings a noir edge.
