BLACK SHEEP

END GAME

Director: Rob Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman (USA, 40 mins)Where will loved ones spend their last days? Who will be in the room?

In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism – an event largely forgotten from history. 'A Night at the Garden' transports audiences to this chilling gathering and shines a light on the power of demagoguery and anti-Semitism in America.
