How is it that a former Nazi perpetrator became a United Nations Secretary General and later, the president of Austria? In The Waldheim Waltz, Director Ruth Beckermann tells the story of Kurt Waldheim’s rise to prominence in the 80s and the scandal that ensued when his gruesome Nazi past came to light.
Beckermann, born in Vienna in the 1950’s, was part of the activism in the 1980’s during Waldheim’s campaign. In a statement, she remarked, “When I looked at the material I shot 30 years ago, I was shocked. Had I really forgotten how easily emotions can be stirred up against others and used by populist politicians?”
