By Day And By Night (De Día Y De Noche)
Directed by Alejandro Molina | MEXICO | 2010 | 90min | Subtitled | (Q&A)
It’s the distant future. Our planet is overcrowded and lacking necessary resources for the human race to survive. A controversial decision is made. The human population will be split in half, never to interact; one half awake during the day and the other half awake at night. A mother wakes up one night to find that her daughter is missing. A young girl wakes up in an unfamiliar place and time; the sunlight hits her face. Separated by light and dark, will Aurora be able to unlock the mystery behind her daughter’s miraculous disappearance? A visually provoking cerebral drama, BY DAY AND BY NIGHT delves into the idea of what is ethical when the survival of the human race is at stake. This is director Alejandro Molina’s directorial debut. - Vince Palomarez
