THE KISSINGER SAGA: WALTER AND HENRY, TWO BROTHERS FROM FUERTH 
 

Germany, 2008, documentary
87 minutes
English and German with English subtitles
Director: Evi Kurz


North American Premiere

“I never give interviews about my personal life” Henry Kissinger told the filmmaker in 2003. Eventually she changed his mind, and the result is this surprisingly revealing story. For the first time, Henry—former US Secretary of State and National Security Advisor—and his brother Walter—dubbed the “younger, richer Kissinger” by Fortune magazine—speak on-camera about their family, childhood in Germany and fleeing from the Nazis, as well as their new lives in America and professional successes. Previously unseen photos, film footage, letters, diaries, documents and interviews with journalists and others help illuminate the private lives of these men—each powerful, courtly and enigmatic in his own way. Together, the brothers make a sentimental journey back to Fuerth, their hometown in Germany, the country they left decades ago, but never ceased to cherish in their hearts.
