Nuit et brouillard / NIGHT AND FOG
It Happened Yesterday

Resnais was commissioned to make this short film as part of a history of World War 2. The chilling title is a direct translation from Hitler's order that anyone who endangered Germany's security would ?vanish without trace in the night and fog (Nacht und Nebel) of the Third Reich?. The film begins in the overgrown ruins of Auschwitz concentration camp, ending with the Nuremberg trials and reminding the audience that responsibility for the horror was not that of the Nazis alone.
ALAIN RESNAIS Perfectionist and creator of a personal and subjective language, far from shocking or disturbing, his work succeeds in interesting the spectator thanks to the clarity of its results. A persistent researcher into editing and composition techniques, although he has not directed many films, the ones to which he has put his name are highly suggestive: Hiroshima mon amour (1959), L'année dernière à Marienbad (Last Year at Marienbad, 1961), La guerre est finie (War Is Over, 1966) and Mon oncle d'Amérique (My American Uncle, 1980).
