What it’s about:
In 1945, the pictures of Dachau taken by George Stevens’ crew are inserted in a documentary, first shown in the United States, before being projected and used as evidence of the Nazis’ crimes in front of the International Military Tribunal at Nuremberg. It is John Ford, who has undertaken this unprecedented experience. He directed a special unit – the Field Photographic branch (FPB) – responsible for the production of films such as the Nazis concentration camps, and for organizing the filming of the trial.
So, get out that diary and put the date in – we’re looking forward to seeing you there!
