It Happened Here

Kevin Brownlow's meticulously detailed wartime "what if?" takes a frightening look at the Nazi-occupied Britain that might have been. Upon its release in 1966 the film was censored but, 30 years on, the Jersey International Festival is presenting the British premiere of the uncut version. Brownlow will discuss the film after its screening.

1 Oct. 1996 Jersey International Festival (Booking: 01534 873767)
