Long Day's Journey Into Night

Long Day's Journey Into Night

Bi Gan’s audacious second film culminates in a 59 minute single take shot that takes the audience into a jaw-dropping dream state.

Travelling back to his hometown for his father’s funeral, Luo finds himself searching for a lost love. The search takes him into a watery underworld that plays in a single take that has the elegance of ballet and the filmmaking ingeniousness of a Rube Goldberg device.

Calling to mind Mulholland Drive and Uncle Boonmee, this is an enchanting head-trip that puts lost time in a blender and asks the viewer to unknit its dream logic. Once seen, it’s unlikely forgotten.

Long Day's Journey Into Night is being screened in 2D.
