In 1939, the German American Bund organized a rally of 20,000 Nazi supporters at Madison Square Garden in New York City. When documentary filmmaker Marshall Curry stumbled upon footage of the event in historical archives, he was flabbergasted. Together with Field of Vision, he decided to present the footage as a cautionary tale to Americans. His short film, A Night at the Garden, recently premiered at The Atlantic. Can it happen here?
