Dark Night

Directed by Tim Sutton

“Obliquely told in a kind of broken glass collage of images and seemingly unconnected scenes, writer/director Tim Sutton’s third arthouse feature-length effort (‘Pavillion’, and ‘Memphis’ previously) is masterfully made with first-rate precision, but it’s a wrenching experience.” —Indiewire

Loosely inspired by the 2012 massacre in a multiplex in Aurora, CO, Dark Night is a meditative critique of American gun culture taking place over a single day in the lives of six strangers. The film primarily focuses the seemingly mundane activities of everyday life, revealing underlying violence, loneliness and frustration. Dark Night was shot in Sarasota, Florida, by celebrated French DP Hélène Louvart (Pina, The Beach of Agnes) and won the prestigious Lanterna Magica Award at the Venice Film Festival. 2016, US, 85 minutes.
