Nuit et brouillard = : Night and fog

by:Resnais, Alain, 1922-2014

Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz. One of the first cinematic reflections on the horrors of the Holocaust, Night and Fog (Nuit et brouillard) contrasts the stillness of the abandoned camps' quiet, empty buildings with haunting wartime footage. With Night and Fog, Resnais investigates the cyclical nature of man's violence toward man and presents the unsettling suggestion that such horrors could come again.

by:Phillips, William H., 1940-

Phillips shows beginning scriptwriters how to keep journals and complete writing exercises as they study short scripts and short films. The book includes three original short screenplays plus detailed descriptions of two award-winning short films."

Many of the author's suggestions and guidelines also apply to feature-length scripts, so the book will appeal to both those in the professional short-film industry and those writing feature-length scripts."--Jacket.
