«We created an effect that was half realistic and half fantastic.»
World premiere of NIGHT OF A 1000 HOURS at the Busan Flash Forward competition: Real and imaginary worlds, as well as the present and the past, are interwoven in Virgil Widrich's new film, creating a technically very ambitious, cheerfully nostalgic thriller about the return of the dead and ideas which refuse to die.
NIGHT OF A 1000 HOURS wins Busan Bank Award
Virgil Widrich’s time traveling family drama received the prestigious Busan Bank Award – as the most highly rated film of the Flash Forward competition by the festival audience. The award comes with a 20.000 US dollar bonus, shared equally between the director and the Korean distributor of the film.
