When allied forces entered the Nazi concentration camps in 1944-45, the horror was recorded by army and newsreel cameramen.
Their film was intended for a documentary, co-directed by Alfred Hitchcock.
The project was abandoned but this acclaimed new British documentary, ‘Night Will Fall’, directed by Andre Singer tells the tale. It is to be shown at Louth Film Club (LFC) on Monday, September 21.
According to Paul Hill, chair of LFC: “This is a film about a film about the Holocaust. It is, in turn, intriguing about what happened to the plans for the original film and unassumingly sad and revealing about the horror of it all.”
The film starts at 7.30pm at the cinema in Canon Street.
Club membership costs £10 with £4 for each film (£6.50 for non-members; £5.20 for concessions).
