The documentary film “The Liegnitz Plot,” which follows clues in a historical mystery, was a collaborative effort between Associate Professor of Film and Media Studies Dylan Nelson, CC students, and a CC alumnus. The film’s protagonist investigates a rumor that a Nazi officer stole precious stamps from Holocaust victims and buried the purloined collection in the basement of a house in Leg-nica, Poland. The project involved filming in Poland, researching the Shoah Foundation’s Visual History Archive, and many long hours of post-production work.

The creative team included Gary Gilbert, a former “Seinfeld” writer; director Dan Sturman, a former investigative journalist and frequent block visitor in Film and Media Studies; Pema Baldwin ’22 and Maya Rajan ’22, who worked as post-production assistants; and Skye Schelz ’21, who was part of the editorial team.
