By examining the cyclical nature of night and day we encounter an array of characters whose temporal movements defy convention. The tranquility of the night-time in these films reframes the day, making the latter seem otherworldly; the fluidity by which these people move between the two produces a hinterland where conventional concepts of day and night begin to lose meaning.

Book tickets:

Rosie Needham | 2016 | UK | 7′
Three intimate and touching stories from people who love working early in the morning.

Let There Be Night
Benjamin Hameury | 2017 | Hungary | 15′
In a world of shadows, Attila meets Benjamin. He teaches him how to play a game, and as the sun goes down, they become friends.

La Pesca
Pablo Alvarez Mesa, Fernando Lopez Escrivá | 2017 | Colombia, Canada | 22′
La Pesca portrays a day in the life of a family of fishermen in Colombia. With poetry and sensorial richness, the film captures the gestures of these men as they weave nets, cook, and play dominoes, all the while waiting for the fish to come so that they can recommence anew.

Isabel Pagliai | 2017 | France | 14′
A stream, river, young people passing. A crossing at night to get to the beach of Hell. Here is a time before stories. Just contemplate the opposite shore. This film, like a haiku consists of three scenes, reports of memories and sensations fled in childhood landscapes of the director, on the French-Swiss border.

Kees-Jan Husselman | 2016 | The Netherlands | 35′
Nightlight is a cinematic portrait of Cees and Hakki, two men who have been working together at night as welders on the Dutch railway for more than 16 years. They travel to the most isolated locations of the country to weld together the broken and damaged parts of the railway infrastructure. We experience the intensity of their hard physical labour, the estranged atmosphere of the dark and industrial work locations and we see the effect that this type of work has on their personal lives.
