They represent a forgotten kind of courage. All of this work is captured in Glawogger's characteristic stunning compositions, with an eye for the harsh grandeur of elemental and industrial environments.

Filmmaker Marc Levin sets out to understand why 'The Protocols of the Elders of Zion' has been revived, and to challenge one of the most persistent, insidious conspiracy theories of all time"--Container
