No of Discs:
Through Lotte's Lens tells the extraordinary story of the 'Hitler ?migr?s', the refugees ? mainly Jewish who escaped the Nazi regime in the 1930s and found refuge in the UK. Despite many of them being interned on the Isle of Man after war broke out, they brought a richness of endeavour and achievement to this country that still applies today. Musicians, actors, artists, architects, scientists, historians shared a belief in the power of democracy and a loyalty to the country that had welcomed them. "A super film - which (as they say at the BBC) manages to inform, educate ? and entertain!" - Daniel Snowman, historian Told through the portal of Austrian ?migr? portrait photographer Lotte Meitner-Graf, with commentators such as Labour Peer Lord Alf Dubs, renowned architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, historian and author Daniel Snowman (whose book, 'The Hitler Emigres' served as inspiration for the film) and many more. We also feature unique musical performances from the Piatti Quartet and Ensemble ?migr?, bringing depth, variety and more than a dash of humour to the storytelling. The documentary (105 minutes, region: 0) will be broadcast on Sky Arts in June and there has been a theatrical release (from March this year) with screenings at 6 cinemas so far and with more planned for later in the year.
