A Night at The Garden

A Night at The Garden

In 1939, New York's Madison Square Garden played host to an American Nazi rally, mere months before the start of World War II. Through the use of archival footage, director Marshall Curry captures the fervor and magnitude of the German American Bund, a pro-Nazi organization based in the US. In the wake of the tragic events in Charlottesville, Virginia, this film elucidates a decades-long presence of Nazism in America and its relevance to today's political climate.
