BELGIUM | 59 minutes | 2019
A mysterious virus that causes amnesia in its victims is on the loose in a dystopian society. The people call it “night” because it infects the brain, eating away at memories and leaving nothing but darkness. To protect its citizens, the State steps in with a program to harvest and archive their memories. But is it all just a plot to control the population? A poignant drama composed entirely of 20th-century footage retrieved from the Royal Belgian Film Archive, Night Has Come gives new meaning to old images as it raises pointed questions about thought control and resistance. Not to mention, the film itself resembles a kind of memory harvest.“Curious, haunting stock footage extravaganza.” Slash Film“Downright daunting in its scope and miraculous in execution.” Art Technica“Night Has Come is a beautiful and poignant meditation on the essence of memory“ Film SeizureIn collaboration with the Cinémathèque québécoise
