"A Night at The Garden"

In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism – an event largely forgotten from American history. A NIGHT AT THE GARDEN uses striking archival fragments recorded that night to transport modern audiences into this gathering and shine a light on the disturbing fallibility of seemingly decent people. Premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and featured in The Atlantic, The Washington Post, MSNBC, NPR, Salon, and others. More Info at www.ANightAtTheGarden.com
