MOCA Moving Images: Night And Fog
March 9 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
The Museum of Contemporary Art is partnering with the Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab at Florida International University to present a film and panel discussion in coordination with the exhibition “My Name is Maryan.”
Ten years after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps, filmmaker Alain Resnais documented the abandoned grounds of Auschwitz and Majdanek in “Night and Fog” (Nuit et Brouillard) (1956), one of the first cinematic reflections on the Holocaust. Juxtaposing the stillness of the abandoned camps’ empty buildings with haunting wartime footage, Resnais investigates humanity’s capacity for violence, and presents the devastating suggestion that such horrors could occur again.
The following panel discussion will be led by Dr. Terrence Peterson (FIU) and Dr. Oren Stier (FIU), who are experts in Algeria/French Colonialism and the Holocaust/Genocide, respectively. During this discussion, they will take the audience on a journey to understand the historical questions raised in the film and consider universal questions about justice and humanity.
It is free to attend, but registration is required. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art.
