Extraordinary archival footage--much of it in startling color--helps to portray the life and career of the Nazi Party's leading propagandist.

The Goebbels Experiment is an unconventional, intimate biographical portrait of Joseph Goebbels, the leading propagandist for Hitler and the Nazi Party. In addition to the rare period footage, Goebbels is brought to life through the narration of his diaries by Kenneth Branagh. As the New York Times noted, the film is "a cautionary reminder that equal access to the machinery of ideas may be society's most critical goal." (107 mins., video)
