The film follows Pauline, a nurse as she is forced to choose between resistance and collaboration. Made over 8 years by two exceptionally young filmmakers 'It Happened Here' is an impressive and thought provoking film. In this week's episode we examine one of the most ambitious amateur films of its era and delve into the fascinating production, performances and story of 'It Happened Here'.
