Night and Fog (Nuit et Brouillard)

  • 1955 ----- b & w ----- 32 min ----- dvd
  • Alain Resnais' classic documentary explores, with poetic force, the shattering phenomenon of the Nazi genocide pogroms against the Jews. . . The camps, their patterns of life and death, their rulers and the millions of "decent" people whose non-action allowed the camps to exist. As scenes from the Nuremberg trials show official after official answering, "I am not responsible," the film asks, "who then was responsible?" (In French with English subtitles)
