Item description for How It Happened Here by Kevin Brownlow...

How It Happened Here tells the story of the making of a film and the subsequent reception that the film received and the controversy and alarm that it stirred up when it was first released. The film-makers were two teenagers (18 and 16) and they started out with no budget and a borrowed 16 mm camera. The project took 8 years to complete. Part of the book is a humorous and detailed account of how the boys overcame all the practical and financial hurdles of amateur film making and saw the project through to completion and national release. This in itself would qualify the book as a thoroughly entertaining read and a sound basis for a course in film making or media studies of any kind. But this was no ordinary film. Kevin and his co-director Andrew Mollo took as their theme the "what if?" idea of a conquered and occupied England, after a hypothetical defeat and invasion following the Dunkirk retreat.

Reviews - What do customers think about How It Happened Here?

Well worth a look.  Sep 13, 2005
I found this book in my university library and picked it up based on what I read from the back cover. I had never heard of this movie but I had read Brownlow's amazing The Parade's Gone By and figured I could spend a few minutes flipping through the pages. The minutes turned into hours and I forfeited my studies to concentrate entirely on this book.

Not only is it a very intersting and exciting account of two teenagers growing up as they try against all odds to make a historically accurate film for no money, but it also addresses issues such as the artist's responsibility to be honest to his subject and what lengths are neccessary to acheive it.

A great autobiographical account, I would highly suggest this book for other film students planning their own films, as well as those interested in film history or the work of Kevin Brownlow. I did eventually see the movie, and felt that my veiwing experienced was enhanced in part from having read this text.
