“A haunting, artfully understated critique of American gun culture,” Tim Sutton’s third feature is loosely based around the 2012 massacre in Aurora, Colorado that took place during a multiplex screening of The Dark Knight Rises.
Employing a mesmerizing documentary-style technique and a cast of non-professional actors, Dark Night follows the activities of six strangers over the course of one day, from sunrise to midnight, the shooter among them.
“Shot in Sarasota, Florida and lensed by veteran French DP Hélène Louvart, the dream-like visuals articulate both Sutton’s carefully crafted landscapes and the characters’ sense of alienation and suburban malaise.”
Winner of the Lanterna Magica Award at the Venice Film Festival following its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, Dark Night is said to be essential viewing, not only for art-house filmgoers, but for anyone invested in the debate over gun violence in America as well.
