E. J. Gumbel was one of the first to describe and understand extreme events through extreme value statistics, but forgotten is his political life that made him once one of the most exposed enemies of the Nazis, fighting against populism and the rise of fascism. David Ruf's documentary film 'Gumbel's Extreme Values', tells the story of his life through animation, archive material and interviews.
