'Silent Night in Algona' film in production
ALGONA—The World War II home-front drama “Silent Night In Algona” is now in full pre-production mode. The film will be shot in late fall.
“Silent Night in Algona” (Inspired by Actual Events) is a feature film that has been in development for several years by Collective Development Incorporated, which is based in Lansing, Mich., and the Donald R. Tietz Charitable Foundation of Algona.
According to a press release, locales in many Kossuth County communities – with Algona being home base for the production company – will become film sets that will transform building interiors, exteriors and streets and showcase farms, fields, woods, the Des Moines River and much more, taking audiences back to fall 1944 as the story unfolds from September to Christmas Eve.
