Heinrich Himmler Documentary Gets U.S. Distribution After Winning at Jerusalem Festival

Kino Lorber has acquired U.S. rights to the Heinrich Himmler documentary “The Decent One,” which recently won the Best Documentary award at the Jerusalem Film Festival.

Directed by Vanessa Lapa, “The Decent One” explores the personal writings and photographs from the private life of the Nazi SS commander. The film is told from the perspective of Himmler and his family — first from an average German middle class perspective, and later on, from the privileged vantage point of a high ranking Nazi family.

Himmler committed suicide in May, 1945, while in British custody.

“The Decent One” debuted at the Berlin Film Festival. Kino Lorber plans an Academy Awards qualifying release for “The Decent One,” starting with Film Forum in New York on Oct. 1 before a national rollout.

“The Decent One excavates archival history to shed light on the unfathomable Nazi evil as no other film has done,” said CEO Richard Lorber. “Its resonances are profoundly and uniquely relevant to crimes against humanity going on all over the world today.”
