Hitler’s Folly

Mockumentaries are fiction pretending to be documentary movie. This game with truth of ten is in form of satire or parody. „Hitler’s Folly” by Bill Plympton is humouristic story of life and dreams of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. Movie tells about unfulfilled carrier of Hitler as animator, who wanted to create place similiar to Disneyland, called Naziland.


Basing at information that Hitler wanted to be a painter and also gossips that he loved Disney’s „Snow White and seven dwarves” Plympton presents secret history of Third Reich in which supposed to be created four-hour animated saga “ Die Nibelungen” with ….. a cartoon duck. “Hitler’s Folly” shows, what could happen if artistic carrier of Hitler went different way and – instead of becoming cruel dictator – he would became animation maker with position similar to Walt Disney.
