Most of the images of WWII have been shot by cinematographers of Propaganda Kompanien, the III Reich military squad of propaganda. These images are still shown as the reflection of the reality and as an historical testimony but we forget that they have been made for a very specific purpose : propaganda.
As the minister of Education and Propaganda, Docteur Joseph Goebbels himself used this tool of information and manipulation. Propaganda Kompanien has followed the Army in every single operation making images as weapons to spread the Nazi ideology in the entire world.
Today we should ask ourselves whether these images are still manipulating us. Do they still influence our perception of what we know about the WWII? Are they still images of Nazi propaganda in a way? The cinematographers of the Propaganda Kompanien have seen the war carrying their cameras. This documentary follows four of them, including the personal cinematographer of Adolf Hitler, and analyses the mecanism of this authentic war weapon.
