Kalanag - Hitler's Magician

52' (ENG, GER), 72' (GER, ENG subs)

Helmut Schreiber alias Kalanag is one of the most controversial entertainers - a man with a white waistcoat and a dark past.

As the "court magician of the Nazis", he enchanted parties for Goebbels and entertained the masses at NSDAP events. At the same time, he was responsible for propaganda films. After the war, he was no longer allowed to work in the film industry. So he turned his hobby into a profession and started an international career as the world's greatest post-war magician neglecting his past . Helmut Schreiber's unbelievable career is a perfect example of unlimited merciless complicity and the suppression of the Nazi past after 1945. The film tells the extraordinary story of Kalanag, for whom deception, disguise and trickery were his life's principles.
