The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui archiveThis menacing parable recasts Hitler as a small time hoodlum in the economic turmoil of gangster controlled 1930s Chicago. Ui is leader of the protection racket that controls the local Cauliflower Trust and hell-bent on taking over the city's entire fruit and veg trade - whatever the cost... This new production takes Brecht's vision and places it into the heart of modern Africa. In a world of hyperinflation and a regime governing through terror and extortion, Brecht's comic masterpiece gains a frightening new prescience.
