The documentary will be shown in tandem with a new documentary, “Night Will Fall,” at festivals and in theaters, as well as on British television to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Hitchcock was approached in 1945 by his friend and producer Sidney Bernstein about the possibility of helping with a documentary based on footage shot in the Nazi concentration camps by British and Soviet army units. Upon first viewing the footage, the director of “Psycho” and “The 39 Steps” was reportedly so traumatized that he avoided the film studio for a week.

Blackfish is in some theatres now, and is getting wider release soon. A documentary about a killer whale from Sea World, this film focuses on what happens when a wild animal is yanked out of the wild, submitted to detrimental conditions, and forced to perform daily. It’s a pretty controversial subject, and the film itself has caused Sea World a good deal of hassle. But how is it? Is it a thoughtful intelligent documentary, or should it be left in a dark shallow pool?
When two directors, Carl Deal and Tia Lessin were granted $150,000 from PBS to create a documentary that would have not put the powerful Koch brothers in an unfavorable light, funding was suddenly pulled when the brothers Koch paid PBS off to have the documentary left unmade. But then the story about a story trying to be told got out, the two directors saw an opportunity to have the film crowdfunded via Kickstarter. After blasting through their first goal of $75k, they’re now looking to recoup the rest of their $150,000 to make ‘Citizen Koch’ a reality.
