This film seeks for the truth behind one of the most mysterious Nazi propaganda films ever shot inside the Warsaw Ghetto. The film interweaves diary entries written by ghetto inhabitants during the filming, the testimonies of living survivors who still remember the filming, and for the first time a rare interrogation protocol of one of the German cameramen, testifying about his role in the making of the film. By juxtaposing the filmed scenes with its behind-the –scenes’ layered reality, A film unfinished shakes our uncritical trust in the photographic image and the way we percieve the historical past.
