A satirical reimagining of the life and dreams of the Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. The film explores Hitler’s unfulfilled animation career, involving creating a Disneyland-like place called Nazi-land.
Riffing on Adolf Hitler’s early efforts to become a painter, plus a report that the Führer had loved Disney’s “Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs”, this dire mockumentary purports to tell the secret history of the Nazi regime, with World War II more or less an afterthought to Hitler’s passion project: a four-hour, animated “Die Nibelungen” starring a cartoon duck.
“Hitler’s Folly” explores what might have happened if Adolf Hitler’s art career had been more successful and instead of becoming an evil dictator, he was inspired to become an animator like Walt Disney.
