Preview Screening: Night Will Fall + Q&A
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director André Singer and producer Sally Angel.
In 1945, a team of top filmmakers came together to make a documentary about the horrific findings in the concentration camps. This film would provide lasting, undeniable evidence of the Nazis’ unspeakable crimes. Led by Sidney Bernstein, founder of Granada TV, the making of the film also involved editor Stewart McAllister, writer and future cabinet minister Richard Crossman, and, as treatment adviser, Alfred Hitchcock. Despite initial support from the British and US governments, the film was never finished. Today, 70 years on, it has been restored and completed by Imperial War Museums.
Using original archive footage and eyewitness testimonies, Night Will Fall tells the extraordinary story of the filming of the camps by British, American and Soviet cameramen. Acclaimed filmmaker André Singer chronicles the untold story of this film’s history and the fate of Bernstein’s project.
Directed by André Singer
Night Will Fall opens in cinemas on 19 September
