Endless Night

Endless Night (Longa noite), dir. Eloy Enciso, Spain 2019, 90 min., Galician and Spanish with English subtitles 

In Eloy Enciso’s third feature, a man returns to his Galician hometown after years of absence to unearth hidden stories from the years following the Spanish Civil War. With echoes of Jean-Marie Straub and Danièle Huillet’s methodologies in approaching the present through representations of the forgotten past, Endless Night assembles different accounts from plays, memoirs and letters by writers and artists such as Max Aub, Alfonso Sastre and Luís Seoane. In an unfolding series of austere, well-composed and often nocturnal scenes evoking a nightmarish atmosphere, non-professional actors lay out testimonies and fabulations side by side in order to delve into the long night of the fascist Franco regime.
The screening is followed by a live Q&A with director Eloy Enciso, hosted by critic and academic Maria Delgado on 9 December. You can join this event for free at 8:20pm GMT.
