Based on a well-documented meeting between famed animator Walt Disney and German Chancellor Adolf Hitler in Munich in 1935, Disney & Deutschland is an avant-garde exploration of the relationship between fantasy and fascism.
Walt Disney arrives in Europe to receive an award. He also visits Adolf Hitler's mountain retreat where he meets with Hitler, Leni Riefenstahl, Hitler's filmmaker, and Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels. Munich newspapers hail Disney as "the great white hope against the Jews of Hollywood," but what is Walt Disney's real position on Jewish-dominated Hollywood, and what is America's attraction to fascism, even in the present? A Fellini-esque foray, Disney & Deutschland explores the inner sanctum of the Führer and the mind one of the most influential entertainment figures of the 20th century.
