"Of all art forms, film is the one that gives the greatest illusion of authenticity...of truth...A motion picture takes a viewer inside where real people are supposedly doing real things...We assume there is a certain verisimilitude, a certain authenticity, but there is always some degree of distortion."

Annette Insdorf, film historian (author of Indelible Shadows: Film and the Holocaust) quoted in the documentary "Imaginary Witness: Hollywood and the Holocaust"
