HOLLYWOOD’S SECOND WORLD WAR
DIRECTOR: Jascha Hannover
PRODUCER: André Schäfer
EDITOR: Fritz Busse
CINEMATOGRAPHER: Andy Lehmann
Hollywood’s Second World War tells the story of four Hollywood directors of European origin, who returned to the “Old World” during World War II to make propaganda documentaries for the U.S. Army at the front: William Wyler from Alsace, Frank Capra from Italy, Anatole Litvak from Ukraine and, in post-war Germany, Billy Wilder from Austria. The four men, three of whom came from Jewish families, risked their lives at times for their new homeland and returned to the U.S. with serious physical and psychological injuries. Their films are unique, long-forgotten documentaries dealing with the front line in Italy and the bombardment of Germany through to the liberation of Dachau.
Jascha Hannover studied filmmaking and philosophy at Johannes Gutenberg University in Mainz. During college he created six short movies while working as a film critic. He directed and wrote Never Be Boring: Billy Wilderand was Co-Director with Andre Schafer of The Great Literary Tour: John Steinbeck’s USA.
Two simultaneous exhibitions focusing on the world of printmaking will feature giants in modern and contemporary art, along with talented artists from all over the world. Both exhibitions, the brainchildren of Sag Harbor artist and master printmaker Dan Welden, combine to create a milestone event that brings printmaking to the forefront of art. Presented with Inspiration Plus and Dan Welden.
