The documentary, based on the book of the same name by Lynn Nicholas, focuses on the massive theft of art by the Nazis which continues to have an impact today. It doesn't ignore the impact of the Allies telling the story of the military's Monuments Men (including Taper) who worked to protect the culture of the cities in the path of the war.
Michael Guillén interviewed Berge and Cohen. Cohen, Nicholas, and Taper were also on Forum this morning. Co-producer Robert Edsel has a blog on issues related to the film. There are more video clips from the film online.
Cohen was executive producer of Wonders are Many which also screened at SFIFF, and Newnham directed Sentenced Home which has been airing this week on Independent Lens on PBS.
