Set in 1960, The German Doctor imagines an Argentine family unknowingly befriending Josef Mengele, the Nazi war criminal notorious for his horrific medical experiments, during his period in hiding in Patagonia. Less a conspiracy thriller than a subtle meditation on complicity, willful ignorance, and the allure of perfection—even at the risk of self-destruction—the film thought-provokingly ponders whether, if you met the “angel of death” on the road, would you recognize him? Or might you be charmed by the friendly doctor and his seductive promises to cure your diminutive daughter, fund your creative work, and care for your unborn twins? This year’s Argentinean submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar. (93 mins.)

Filmography: XXY (07), The Fish Child (09).

In Spanish and German with English subtitles.

Sponsored by King Estate Winery.


Interests: Narrative Feature, Spanish Language, German Language.
