CURRENT EXHIBITIONS

Filming The Camps: John Ford, Samuel Fuller, George Stevens, From Hollywood to Nuremberg

CLOSES APRIL 30: Hollywood directors John Ford, George Stevens, and Samuel Fuller entertained audiences with cinema classics like The Grapes of Wrath, Shane, and The Big Red One. But their most important contribution to history may have been their work in the U.S. Armed Forces and Secret Services, filming the realities of war and the liberation of Nazi concentration camps. Their documentation provides an essential visual record of WWII. Combining a wealth of rare material, including private letters and footage from their own personal archives, Filming the Camps: John Ford, Samuel Fuller, George Stevens, from Hollywood to Nuremberg, explores these filmmakers’ experiences during and after WWII, their confrontation with Nazi atrocities, and the mark that left on them as artists. An exhibition by the Mémorial de la Shoah, Paris, France
