DIRECTED BY - Wolfgang Staudte

Ranked as one of Germany's most important films ever, ROTATION is the story of a German family that becomes divided over supporting the Nazis. The father considers joining the Nazi party purely to improve his finances. But after he helps print resistance leaflets, his son, a Hitler Youth member, betrays him. After the war father and son meet again. Another Wolfgang Staudte (THE MURDERERS ARE AMONG US) classic, ROTATION was censored by the Soviets because of its pacifist message and footage from Leni Riefenstahl's OLYMPIA.
