It’s almost surreal to watch Stephen Colbert go off on Donald Trump. It’s not because of the fact that he’s a late night talk show host who is doing is job and that’s what he has to do.

The Holocaust might seem like a topic that’s completely off-limits for comedy, but a new documentary strives to challenge that assumption. “The Last Laugh” examines whether it’s acceptable to use humor in connection with a tragedy of that scale, and the implications for other taboo topics in a society that prizes free speech. Shot on 16mm, it weaves together a portrait of Auschwitz survivor Renee Firestone alongside interviews with comedians like Mel Brooks, Sarah Silverman and Gilbert Gottfried.

Watch an exclusive trailer from the film below and check out the poster as well.
