HISTORY

Night and Fog (The Criterion Collection)(1955) Blu-ray

One of the most vivid depictions of the horrors of Nazi Concentration Camps. Filmed in 1955 at several concentration camps in Poland, the film combines new color and black and white footage with black and white newsreels, footage shot by the victorious allies, and stills, to tell the story not only of the camps, but to portray the horror of man's brutal inhumanity.

Director: Alain Resnais

Night and Fog

Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek in Night and Fog (Nuit et brouillard), one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust. Juxtaposing the stillness of the abandoned camps' empty buildings with haunting wartime footage, Resnais investigates the cyclical nature of humanity's violence against humanity, and presents the devastating suggestion that such horrors could occur again.

Special Features:
- New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack on the Blu-ray
- Excerpt from a 1994 audio interview with director Alain Resnais
- New interview with documentary filmmaker Joshua Oppenheimer
- Face aux fantômes, a 99-minute 2009 documentary featuring historian Sylvie Lindeperg that explores the French memory of the Holocaust and the controversy surrounding the film's release
- New English subtitle translation
- PLUS: An essay by film scholar Colin MacCabe
STREET DATE: JULY 19.
