THE EVIL WITHIN
(94 min) US


SATURDAY 10/28, 9:10 PM (Session 23)

Director/Producer: Eduardo Rufeisen

Description:
This documentary focuses on social psychology tools that could illuminate reasons into the unthinkable possibility of a holocaust ever happening again. It presents theories of human social behavior with the objective of creating an awareness of the underlying conditions that may have led a society under the influence of a group of high-functioning individuals to establish an unstoppable killing apparatus. Were they all Nazi psychopaths or were they ordinary human beings whose behavior was determined by the dynamics of institutional power? By means of historical footage, photos and interviews with scholars, this documentary answers to these questions and others, fostering a re-evaluation of an aspect of the Nazi movement and the Holocaust that has been avoided by films in general due to its sensitive nature, namely, the psychological investigation of Nazism and its perpetrators. The Evil Within chronicles the forces at play in a society and in the human mind that can enable these atrocities to occur. It stands as a testament of the human capacity for evil and a contribution to help deter future genocides, thus strengthening human rights and promoting social change.
