Night and Fog (Digital Restoration)

Synopsis

A classic 1956 French documentary short, fully restored. Directed by Alain RESNAIS in collaboration with scriptwriter Jean CAYROL, a survivor of the Mauthausen-Gusen concentration camp himself, the film features the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek established in occupied Poland, while describing the lives of prisoners in the camps. The title is taken from the Nacht und Nebel program of abductions and disappearances decreed by Nazi Germany.
