LLEGA LA NOCHE

Hilario Abad | Spain | 2020 | 72 min.
O.V. in Spanish and Polish subtitled in Spanish

This elliptical and sober film takes us through the territory of the subconscious and dreams by focusing on three stories (to keep us awake). The first, in a mountain village in ancient times where a mysterious cave opens during a storm, where they find stalagmites with painted faces. The second, in 1950s Poland: a little girl dreams every night of her mother, who died in terrible circumstances, asking her to find a piece of her body without which she feels incomplete. And the third, today, in which two young people spend a night in a remote country house under the weight of an old children's story of a headless lady.
