Night and Fog (1955) [Short]

France (MIFF 1966 , Programme 35)
Director: Alain Resnais

Resnais has built up his film on a counterpoint of present and past; the horrors of yesterday, shown in black and white, are interspersed with the remains of Auschwitz, filmed in colour.

The title evokes the mood of the film - a form of meditation, calm, considered, unhysterical and un-rhetorical.
