Chris Lewis, son of actor and comedian Jerry Lewis, visits Berlinale 2020 because he’s preparing a donation for the Deutsche Kinemathek: all the materials kept by his father from the shooting of The day the clown cried, a film lost in time.

The Day the Clown Cried is an unreleased 1972 Swedish-French drama film directed by and starring Jerry Lewis. It is based on an original screenplay by Joan O’Brien and Charles Denton, from a story idea by Joan O’Brien, with additional material from Jerry Lewis. The film was met with controversy regarding its premise and content, which features a circus clown who is imprisoned in a Nazi concentration camp.
