NIGHT

Australia, 2007 (MIFF 2007, Homegrown)

Director: Lawrence Johnston

WORLD PREMIERE

A stunning and cinematic big screen event documentary celebrating Australia at night.

Showing society in all its forms, people and places, urban and rural, Night explores the universal nature of night and how we experience it. Beautiful and arresting imagery captures the mood and magic of night, weaving these images against a symphonic score by composer Cezary Skubiszewski.

People from all walks of life tell of what night means to them - the pleasure and the pain, in reality and fantasy, work and leisure, past and present. The film juxtaposes the differences in our varied existence between dusk and the dawn of a new day.
Night is the work of Lawrence Johnston, best known for the award-winning film Eternity.
