The Night of the Moon Has Many Hours

Mauricio Arango

Colombia/USA, Surrealist Human Rights Drama, 2010
16 min, HDCAM, Color
No dialogue


A young man living in the Colombian countryside wakes up in the middle of the night. With some difficulty he gets up, dresses, and ventures outside. As he walks, nature's presence is felt in a heightened way: animal noises, trees swaying in the wind, and an impenetrable darkness overtake his path. After reaching the river's shore, he wades into the water on a raft with nothing but a long stick to row with and a single light to guide him. Beneath the moon-lit ripples he makes a startling discovery. In the eerie stillness of the night, it is hard to distinguish him from what he finds. He navigates upstream, alone and consumed by the weight of his chore. This short film has been enjoying an international festival tour along with accolades including a Jury's Choice Award at the Black Maria Film + Video Festival.
