Night of Fools

28 November 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

Tuesday 28 November 2017, 7.30 for 8pm.

UK Premiere. This documentary film (56 mins)  tells the story of “Operation Torch” – the code name for the American landing in French-ruled North Africa, and the central role in it played by the Algerian underground, which was almost entirely made up of Jews. With only 400 volunteers versus the Vichy garrison of 25,000 troops, the underground succeeded in taking control of Algiers for one night, before handing the city over the Americans, who arrived via an amphibious landing the next morning. Director Rami Kimchi, an Israeli culture critic and filmmaker, will be joining us to take the Q&A afterwards. JW3, 341 – 351 Finchley Road, NW3 6ET. £10. To book click  here.
