“Night Will Fall is a must-see documentary”
- Stephen Fry
“This intellectually bracing film reveals the power of documentary and why it matters. It challenges us to never take anything for granted. With skill and grace this film is a remarkable achievement reminding of the need to never forget.”
-Dawn Porter, Sheffield International Documentary Festival Special Jury
Upon liberation of the concentration camps in 1945, Sydney Bernstein directed a team of cameramen in a mission to show the world the hundreds of thousands of victims of the concentration camps. This resulted in what might have been the most gruesomely honest documentaries about the holocaust that was ever made.
So why has no one seen it?
Through eyewitness accounts and archival footage, Night Will Fall tells the story of how politics and treachery of the second World War stopped the production of one of the most important films of the 20th century.
