Synopsis: NIGHT is a stunning and cinematic feature that explores the universal nature of night and how we experience it. People and places, urban and rural, are reflected in its wonder. It captures the mystery, mood and magic of the night and weaves these images into a lush and dramatic symphonic score. Voices from all walks of life tell stories of their ‘affair’ with the night – the pleasure and the pain, reality and fantasy, at work and leisure, past and present – cutting across the aural and visual landscape.
Night holds many pleasures. For some, it’s when we come alive, the time we feel we live our real lives, seeking leisure or at home after a long day at work. Night is filled with celebrations which mark the passage of time – birthdays, anniversaries, dinners, family outings, sporting events, fireworks, the movies, travel, love and sex. NIGHT captures the essence of our lives between dusk and the dawn of a new day.
