U.S. documentary expert Submarine Entertainment and Israel-based sales company Cinemaphil have partnered to distribute the documentary “Final Account” about Nazism’s legacy in the participating media, which will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September.
The team is teaming up with submarine participants to jointly present the film’s domestic sales, while Cinemafill will handle international sales outside the United States.
The high-profile dock depicts the last living generation of German participants in Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich.
This oral history of the Third Reich, according to the propaganda material, “raises urgent questions about authority, relevance, complexity, national identity, responsibility and historical historical calculations”, showing how men and women fight among civilians, ranging from former SS members. Including their memories, perceptions and personal assessments of their own role in the crime. “
Holland, who spent a decade filming and directing the project, co-produced the film with John Butsek and Riet Ward. Co-produced by partners Jeff Schol and Diane Weimann with co-executives Andrew Ruhman and Claire Aguilar.
Sadly, Holland passed away earlier this month at the age of 711.

“One of the most important and rewarding experiences of my career has been to help Luke realize his vision for 10 years,” John Latsack said in a statement. “It’s now up to all of us to make sure his film’s important messages are seen and heard by as many people as possible.”
In the statement, Ward further stated that he was “extremely proud that we were able to help Holland realize his ambition and vision to create films of strong and lasting impact.”
Diane Weerman, chief content officer for the participants, said the “Final Account” was “not a beautiful, powerful testament to Luke Holland’s life and work, but a timely, necessary viewing work for filmmakers, especially given what is happening in the world today.”
Involved in the release of the film, participants will work with the USC Shoa Foundation, a global organization founded by Steven Spielberg, to distribute the doc’s education – to fight opposition and other forms of hatred through evidence.
