In Nazi-occupied France during World War II, a group of Jewish-American soldiers known as “The Basterds” are chosen specifically to spread fear throughout the Third Reich by scalping and brutally killing Nazis. The Basterds, lead by Lt. Aldo Raine soon cross paths with a French-Jewish teenage girl who runs a movie theater in Paris which is targeted by the soldiers.
THE GO-GO BOYS: The Inside Story of Cannon films is a documentary that tells the inside story of two Israeli-born cousins, Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, who in pursuit of the American Dream turned the Hollywood power structure upside down, producing over 300 films and becoming the most powerful independent film company in the world. Up close and personal, the film examines the complex relationship between two contradictory personalities whose combined force fueled their success and eventual collapse.
Celebrated, condemned, loved and loathed, Cannon’s cultural impact and legacy is undeniable, wielding a kind of pop-cultural power that continues to seep into modern life today. [Synopsis courtesy of Cannes Film Festival]
