Night and Fog in Japan (日本の夜と霧 Nihon no Yoru to Kiri) is a 1960 Japanese film directed by Nagisa Oshima. It is an intensely political film both in subject matter (Zengakuren opposition in 1950 and 1960 to the AMPO Treaty) and in thematic concerns such as political memory and the interpersonal dynamics of social movements.
