The Waldheim Waltz
The film shows the tangled web that former UN Secretary General Kurt Waldheim became ensnared in by concealing two years of his wartime biography. It shows the swift succession of new allegations by the World Jewish Congress against him, the denial by the Austrian political class, the outbreak of anti-Semitism and patriotism, which finally led to his election. THE WALDHEIM WALTZ is a film about truth and lies or “alternative facts”. About individual and collective consciousness.
