Synopsis

North American Premiere

Ashcan is a theatrical docudrama telling the little-known story of the secret prison where Nazi leaders were detained following the Allied victory on May 8, 1945. The US Army ran the prison in Mondorf-les-Bains, Luxembourg, during the grey period between the end of the war and the Nuremberg trials. The film takes viewers to the heart of the Nazi regime, painting a portrait of their leaders through US intelligence. A fascinating look at a rarely-documented historical moment.
