"The Secret of the Special Archive"
Documentary, Stresh, Moscow 2001.
Facts & Files provided historical consultation for the documentary film "The Secret of the Special Archive" by the Russian production company Stresh in cooperation with the Russian archive administration.
Based on the history of the so called "trophy-collections" of records which are held at the Special Archive in Moscow, the film deals with the displacement of cultural artefacts during and after World War II. Within the scope of this project Facts & Files prepared the shooting in Germany, researched records, footage, and photographs and organised contacts with German archives.
