One of the most influential and powerful explorations of the Holocaust ever made, Night and Fog remains an essential and indispensable document of the 20th century.

Less than a decade after the end of the war, when questions of responsibility were not yet being addressed, filmmaker Alain Resnais presented a remarkably blunt indictment not only of the Nazis but of the world community. One of the first cinematic reflections on the horrors of the Holocaust, Night And Fog (Nuit et Brouillard) contrasts the stillness of the quiet, empty buildings of the camps at Auschwitz and Majdanek with haunting wartime footage. Resnais investigates the cyclical nature of man's violence toward man and presents the unsettling suggestion that such horrors could come again.
