<![CDATA[<i>]]>Night and Fog<![CDATA[</i>]]> represents the peak of director Alain Resnais' activities as a short-subject filmmaker. Framed as a documentary, the film is an unsettling view of life inside the Nazi concentration camps of World War II. As he would in his later features (<![CDATA[<i>]]>Hiroshima Mon Amour, Last Year at Marienbad<![CDATA[</i>]]> et. al.) Resnais toys with chronology, with memory becoming present reality and vice versa at several critical junctures. Jean Cayrol, later responsible for the script of Resnais' <![CDATA[<i>]]>Muriel<![CDATA[</i>]]> (1962), wrote the narration for <![CDATA[<i>]]>Night and Fog<![CDATA[</i>]]>. The film was originally released in France as <![CDATA[<i>]]>Nuit et brouillard<![CDATA[</i>]]>.

Will be screened together with <filmlink id=\"2567\">Strange Victory</filmlink>.
