"THE ORIGINAL SOUVLAKI"

SUZANNE CHESSLER

Special to the Jewish News

onhaeffer, a traditionally
made documentary about
an untraditional man,
takes its place as an early
offering in the 2003-2004 season of
the Detroit Film Theatre.
The movie, about a Protestant the-
ologian who becomes part of the
German resistance against Hider, will
be shown Aug. 25 at the Detroit
Institute of Arts.
"I chose this film because of the
fascinating subject
matter and the impas-
sioned feelings that
come across! says
Elliot Wilhelm, DIA
film curator. "It was
submitted to us recent-
ly, and I thought it
would be very valuable
to include."
Martin Doblmeier,
producer and director
of Bonhoeffer, has had
a lifelong interest in
religion and became
aware of this subject
while still a high-
school. student. He has
made a number of TV
films about faith, his-
tory and social issues,
including Church Without Borders
and American Byzanfine.
"My focus [for the Bonhoeffer
project] was [not so much] orethe
decision Dietrich Bonhoeffer made
[but] on the deep inner struggles
that brought him from Christian
pacifist priest to an active member
in the plots to kill Adolf Hitler,"
explains Doblmeier, president and
founder of the Virginia-based
Journey Films.
"I also wanted to focus on the iso-
lation Bonhoeffer felt as he stepped
further and further away from his
fellow pastors who were falling over
themselves in support of Hitler."
The documentary, which uses the
voice of Klaus Maria Brandauer as

Bonhoeffer, includes interviews with
the Lutheran minister's family and
friends as they recall how he devel-
oped his social conscience. The 90-
minute work also includes commen-
tary by historians and theologians,
such as John de Gruchy and
Desmond Tutu.
The historical footage of Hitler
speaking before vast crowds of
cheering people serves to dramatize
Bonhoeffer's courage in taking on
the issue of anti-Semitism with scant
support. The movie was shot on
location in Germany and the United
States.
Bonhoeffer, who is
shown in the film as
being inspired by the
civil rights movement
in America, presented
his views in books in
addition to expressing
them by working
underground.

Cost of Discipleship,
Letters and Papers from
Prison and Ethics were

written during his
struggle, which resulted
in his being jailed, tor
mented and killed by
the Nazis.
"I believe part of the
reason the film is get-
ting attention now is
because many of the issues
Bonhoeffer faced — the role of the
church in the modern world,
national loyalty and personal con-
science, what the call to being a
`peacemaker' really means — are
issues we continue to struggle with
today," says Doblmeier about his
first feature-length documentary
film. ❑
