Albert Speer was one of Hitler’s closest confidants and his chief architect, tasked with the reconstruction of Berlin as the capital of a global empire. As Minister of Armaments, Speer was responsible for 12 million forced labourers. Exactly how he escaped the death penalty in Nuremburg is still a mystery. In 1971 Speer worked on a bizarre plan to clear his name: a Hollywood film inspired by his memoirs. Speer Goes to Hollywood is based on the hundreds of audio cassettes that screenwriter Andrew Birkin recorded with Speer. Rare archival footage and a wonderful story make this film as fascinating and dubious as the Nazi architect himself.
