Filmmaker Tim Sutton has quietly emerged as a directorial talent with a distinctive visual and narrative voice. His debut, “Pavilion,” made waves at SXSW; his followup, “Memphis,” debuted at the Venice Film Festival, screened at Sundance, and once again established his singular approach; and this week he returns to Park City with “Dark Night,” which might be his boldest statement yet.
Starring Robert Jumper, Anna Rose Hopkins, Rosie Rodriguez, Karina Macias, Aaron Purvis, and Eddie Cacciola, the story unfolds over the course of a lazy summer day, leading to an unforgettable event that is likely to have audiences buzzing at Sundance. Certainly, its placement in the NEXT category of programming, where films like “Tangerine,” “James White,” “A Girl Who Walks Home Alone At Night,” “Obvious Child,” and others have broken out in recent years, bodes well, and makes “Dark Night” one to keep an eye on.
Below, you can find the exclusive, eerie, and enigmatic poster for the movie designed by Caspar Newbolt. “Dark Night” will have its first screening at Sundance on Sunday, January 24th at 9 PM at the Library Center Theater.
