The Night of the Moon Has Many Hours

12 minutes. HD Video. 2010
Shot in the Eastern Plains of Colombia.

The Night of the Moon Has Many Hours shows the nightly ritual of a man who recovers bodies from a river to return them to their mourners. Animal and insect noises, wind-swung vegetation, the black waters, and an impenetrable darkness overtake the viewer’s aural and visual fields to create an air of mystery and apprehension.

The film was shot in its entirety in the Eastern Plains in Colombia and was post-produced in the United States, thanks to the genreous support of the Bush Foundation for the Arts and the Minnesota State Arts Board.
