Night will FallAndre Singer

Night Will Fall is made entirely with original and unique footage from 1945: film footage made by the Allies when they liberated concentration camps. The footage ended up with renowned filmmakers like Hitchcock so they could turn it into a documentary, but it remained unfinished for 70 years. Andre Singer finally took control and completed this essential documentary.

When British troops started liberating concentration camps in 1945, they brought a lot of war and news photographers with them. They were instructed to capture as much of the horror as they could so they could share it with the rest of the world. Hours of film were passed on to none other than Alfred Hitchcock and Sidney Bernstein. Unfortunately, they never finished their project: the film remained in the archives for seven decades. Andre Singer dug up the images, and finished it with the help of, among others, Helena Bonham Carter. In 2014 the film was shown for the first time: it is a milestone in both the history of the Second World War and war photography and cinematography. Night Will Fall is one of the most chilling, but also one of the most important documentaries in British - or perhaps all of - film history.
