LA NUIT D’AVANT

France 16 min Catalan premiere Fiction

Synopsis

This film tells the story of two nights. One night is not seen in images, existing only in the words of The Clock, by Minnelli, an old Hollywood film. The other night is seen in images we hardly know anything about, those of a woman who talks about the film. So, in fact there are two films, two stories that come together at the same time, getting closer, and moving away, merging with what they have in common: desire, night and the city.
