On Monday, January 26th, HBO is airing Night Will Fall, a documentary that tells the story of a film that was never finished. As World War II was finally ending, footage documenting the atrocities of the war were meant to be made into a film that would capture the horror of the events, in hopes that this could never be repeated. Many great British filmmakers were involved (including Alfred Hitchcock), but the movie was not completed. Now these images and stories have been culled into Night Will Fall.
Of course, the brutal images that are captured in this film caught my attention, as they relate directly to our own fiction film, K.I.A. In our story, the character of Rick returns from the war a troubled man; Troubled by the devastating atrocities he saw firsthand.
