Nazi resistance captured on film

Written by 

Six independent filmmakers and their films will land on the campus of Western Carolina University this year, as part of the Southern Circuit, a tour of independent filmmakers that provides communities across the South access to smaller films and opportunities to join film directors in post-screening discussions.

Kicking off the season is “Surviving Hitler: A Love Story” by filmmaker John-Keith Wasson. It will be shown at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 13, in the A.K. Hinds University Center.

This documentary chronicles war, resistance and survival through the eyes of Jutta, a teenager in Nazi Germany, and her sweetheart, Helmuth, an injured soldier. As members of the Nazi resistance, the two become co-conspirators in the final plot to assassinate Hitler. The film includes narration by Jutta and original eight mm footage shot by Helmuth.
