Shoah' director, Claude Lanzmann’s, new film is 'The Last of the Unjust'
The new documentary by Claude Lanzmann, “The Last of the Unjust”, tells the story of Benjamin Murmelstein, a rabbi from Vienna who was complicit with the Nazis. The film revisits a series of interviews with Murmelstein first recorded in 1975. This is not the first film by Lanzmann which examines the Holocaust. His documentary “Shoah” featured 9/12 hours of archival footage. Milos Stehlik, WBEZ’s film contributor and Richard Brody, the movies-listings editor at The New Yorker, join us to discuss Lanzmann’s latest film.
