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.

Presented by New York Academy of Art with Southampton Arts Center. Curated by David Kratz and Stephanie Roach, and edited by Emma Gilbey Keller. Artists and writers are always the antennae of our society, all the more so at a time as challenging as this one. They have an opportunity—some might say, a duty—to interpret this moment and imagine the world not only as it is, but also as it could be. This is the guiding challenge of the group exhibition, 2020 Vision. We asked artists, writers, and creative thinkers to consider three questions of critical importance: Our lives will never be the same, but what will change look like? What do we want to keep as we rebuild? And what must we guard against? We invited these creators to express what they saw, what they felt, and what they experienced during this time of pause and reassessment, upheaval and risk, and anxiety and uncertainty. It is our hope that 2020 Vision marks one of many beginnings in the necessary process of ‘post-traumatic growth’ and positive change for our society and our world.
