Night Will Falls tells the story of the liberation of the German Concentration Camps. Using remarkable archive footage and testimony from both survivors and liberators, it tells of the efforts made to document the almost unbelievable scenes that the Allies encountered on liberation.
The film explores how a team of top filmmakers, including Sidney Bernstein, Richard Crossman and Alfred Hitchcock, came together to make a film to provide undeniable evidence of what the Allies found, but the film was stopped in its tracks by the British Government, and only now 70 years on, has it been completed. Each new generation deserves to access this evidence.
“Powerful, must-see documentary.”
“It is tough but compelling viewing. Singer’s take is unflinching”
