Forgotten things

What was it like to go to the movies in January 1940?

Movie theatres have historically been places of psychological escape. But even cinemas weren’t safe havens from real-world anxieties during the Second World War – a time when newsreels brought foreboding images of death, destruction and unease to the masses before the full-length feature. Using found footage, Forgotten Things examines the intersection of film with history’s deadliest conflict, highlighting the acute anxiety of a time when nearly everyone on the planet was either at, or seemingly just on the verge of, total war.
