The Waldheim Waltz
Austrian documentarian Ruth Beckermann’s investigation of the controversial life of Kurt Waldheim: UN Secretary-General in the 70s, elected Austria’s president a decade later under hotly contested circumstances, amidst allegations of his previously undisclosed role in the Nazi regime of World War II –an episode still being debated and as relevant as ever. “Clear, impassioned but never polemical….has a sense of urgency made more pressing given political developments not just in Austria…”
