The Authentic Trial of Carl Emmanuel Jung 1966
20 years later, the recreation of the trial of a simple man that confesses himself as a war criminal, Carl Emmanuel Jung..

Hanoun used a near documentary style to portray the imaginary trial of the title character, cast in the film as the former commandant of a Nazi concentration camp, finally called to account for his actions. The “real” Carl Jung, of course, held no such position, but his close association with a number of official Nazi organizations, and his implicit approval of Hitler’s regime through most of the war, remains deeply problematic for most observers. In this film, Hanoun suggests that “his” Jung has been seduced by a life of postwar luxury, and is all too willing to forget his past, even as he is directly confronted with it.

Shot in stark black and white 35mm, the film is by turns abrasive, seductive, and damning, ultimately leaving any “moral judgments” entirely up to the viewer, thus making the spectator, in a sense, the co-creator of the film.
