‘Nazi Gold’ preems tonight

BBC docu stirred controversy

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts tonight will host the Los Angeles premiere of the controversial BBC documentary “Nazi Gold,” which explores the decades-long effort of Holocaust survivors to locate money seized by the Nazis and held by Swiss banks.

The film, which received a BAFTA nomination, shows the history of the controversy and the events that led to the banks’ gradual admission that they were holding some of the Jews’ assets.

“Nazi Gold” — not to be confused with an upcoming Brian De Palma feature of the same name — was directed by Christopher Olgiati, who also helmed “Southern Justice,” winner of two CableAce awards. David Marks, responsible for the BBC series “Reputations,” was associate producer of the “Gold” docu.

Olgiati and Marks will participate in a question-and-answer session after the 7:30 p.m. screening in the Peltz Theater at the Simon Wiesenthal Center in West Los Angeles.
