Description

In 1945, a shocking documentary was made about the Holocaust—a film so effective at showing the horrors of the Nazi concentration camps that, despite the involvement of legendary directors Alfred Hitchock and Billy Wilder, it was never widely seen. After a four-year restoration, the documentary is finally being released. “Night Will Fall” reveals the previously untold story of this vital documentary by juxtaposing unflinching raw footage from the film with modern-day interviews with Holocaust survivors and archival interviews with the film’s creators. A crucial film and an unprecedented look at the experiences of Allied soldiers at the end of WWII, there are few better examples of the power of documentary filmmaking to capture the human experience and preserve the truth of our history.
