In celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary, Claude Lanzmann's nine-and-a-half hour landmark documentary, SHOAH, considered one of the greatest films ever made, is re-released.

Twelve years in the making, SHOAH is Claude Lanzmann’s monumental epic on the Holocaust featuring interviews with survivors, bystanders and perpetrators in 14 countries. The film does not contain any historical footage but rather features interviews which seek to ‘‘reincarnate’’ the Jewish tragedy and also visits places where the crimes took place.

Concerned that the genocide perpetrated only 40 years earlier was already retreating into the mists of time, and that the atrocity was becoming sanitized as History, Lanzmann rewrote the rules of documentary filmmaking with SHOAH " a lasting and massive achievement.
