FATHERING THE NEW WAVE: THE FILMS OF ALAIN RESNAIS
“Night And Fog” / MON ONCLE D'AMERIQUE

Night And Fog” (Nuit Et Brouillard), 1955, 32 min. Dir. Alain Resnais.
Surely one of the most remarkable, and unforgettable, documentaries ever made, this burst upon a world that was already trying to move away from the memory of the Holocaust. Juxtaposing period footage, contemporary images of the former camps and a haunting narration by writer Jean Cayrol, Resnais attempts to sketch the outline of events all too real and yet still unimaginable. In French with English subtitles.

MON ONCLE D'AMERIQUE
MY AMERICAN UNCLE
1980, New World, 125 min, France, Dir: Alain Resnais

One of Alain Resnais’ biggest critical and commercial successes illustrates the radical theories of human behavioral scientist Henri Laborit by comically studying the interwoven stories of a factory manager (Gerard Depardieu), an aspiring actress (Nicole Garcia) and a politician (Roger Pierre). The thoughts and emotions of the fictional characters are magically "mirrored" by clips of three of France’s most famous movie stars - Jean Gabin, Jean Marais and Danielle Darrieux. Wonderfully written by Jean Gruault. In French with English subtitles.
