Frederick Olessi’s film, “Bonhoeffer” produced by FRSProd

Frederick Olessi’s film, “Bonhoeffer”, filmed and edited by FRSProd’s Robert Bullington airs on Princeton Community Television, the week of September 12-24, 2017

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, one of the most poignant Christian theological martyrs of the 20th Century, emerged very early as a implacable foe of Adolph Hitler and the Nazi party after they seized political power in 1930’s Germany. He was a theology student in the United States but returned to Germany to join the vocal Christian resistance to what he saw as a godless regime. On the periphery of the 1944 plot against Hitler, Hitler himself — a week before his own suicide — condemned Bonhoeffer to share the same agonizing death as those who directly plotted against him by reportedly having Bonhoeffer hung naked with a noose of piano wire. The extraordinary actor Philip Rieschick portrays the courageous and reflective Bonhoeffer at the hour of his death.
