Amazon Prime buys rights from MGM to Israeli film ‘The Devil’s Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes’
MGM has sold Amazon Prime the streaming rights to “The Devil’s Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes,” a film released and developed last year by the Kan public broadcaster that uses the audio of an interview with the convicted Nazi war criminal prior to his capture in Argentina by the Mossad.
“This excellent series could only be developed in one palace — Kan,” the broadcaster’s director-general Golan Yochpaz says. “The sale of the series to Amazon proves the importance of both public broadcasting in telling the history of Israel and the Jewish people and that public broadcasting is one of Israel’s best ambassadors in the world.”
Yochpaz’s comments come as new Communication Minister Shlomo Karhi pushes to shutter or at least significantly weaken Kan.
