The Memory Of Justice 1976 Marcel Ophuls DVD
ULTRA RARE 1976 documentary from director Marcel Ophuls. "This monumental film, virtually unavailable to the U.S. public, is perhaps Ophuls' most controversial work as well as one of his greatest. THE MEMORY OF JUSTICE explores the nature of war crimes and the possibility of justice by juxtaposing the Nuremberg Trials with the conflict in French Algeria and the war in Vietnam, but, as Ophuls eloquently argues, 'to compare is not to equate.' This complex film employs dialectical juxtapositions, relevant visual motifs, and complex sound/image patterns to force the audience into confronting the necessity of judgment and justice, no matter how complicated or difficult. THE MEMORY OF JUSTICE is also a self-reflexive work about the making of a film that links past, present, and future on the grand scale of world history with the personal history of Ophuls' wife, children, father and himself and their relationship to the events which precipitated the Nuremberg Trials. In short, this is one of the documentary masterpieces of the 20th century."
