As part of the two-day Light and Noir Fest in partnership with the Illinois Holocaust Museum, the theatre screens “Hangmen Also Die!” (from 1943). Directed by Fritz Lang with a story by Berthold Brecht, this anti-Nazi film is a rarely seen examination of the assassination of Reinhard Heydreich, and the Nazi pursuit of members of the resistance movement. When the film was released, it introduced American audiences to a completely different set of good guys.
