The only source material of this event that were made available to the filmmakers were archival photographs.  To recreate the mood of what has been described as a brutal and barbarous event, the photos were animated and light leaks added.  The transitions between photos were created to appear as 35mm stills on a contact sheet that were quickly being viewed.
