Writer-director Ruth Beckermann’s biographical documentary explores the legacy of Austrian politician Kurt Waldheim, who served as the United Nations Secretary-General from 1972 to 1981 and the President of Austria from 1986 to 1992. His presidential campaign coincided with an intense controversy surrounding the revelation of his complicity in the deportation of Greek Jews to Auschwitz during World War II.
