The Red Orchestra was the most important resistance group inside the Third Reich, a vast spy network whose operations extended from Berlin and Brussels to Paris. Its fighters helped Jews persecuted by the regime, hid deserters, and gathered military information that would prove decisive for Allied victory. The legacy of the Red Orchestra has long been colored by contrasting viewpoints and politically-tinged cinematic interpretations from East and West Germany. By carefully blending excerpts from several of these 1970s films and interviews with the group’s descendants, director Carl-Ludwig Rettinger shines a clear light on this network of mythical spies.
