UNITED STATES | 90 minutes | 2019

A surprise hit and audience award winner at the latest Slamdance Festival, and recently shown at the TIFF’s Midnight Madness, The Vast of Night is THE breakout American movie on everyone’s lips. Sometime in the 50s, a telephone operator and a radio DJ in a small New Mexico town discover strange sound waves that might be coded messages from space. An enigmatic fantasy thriller that pays tribute to the paranoid movies of the 50s, its director is already drawing comparisons to Spielberg. Well worth checking out.
Q&A with the actress Sierra McCormick on October 15th

ERRATUM : only the original version in English will be screened

"One of the biggest stories of the year in terms of genre film has to be Andrew Patterson’s clever The Vast of Night ..." roger
"... strong performances and a strong script. To our delight, The Vast of Night, a home-run debut from Andrew Patterson, has both. If you’re into suspense-driven sci-fi that puts story first ..." Film School Rejects
"Andrew Patterson conjures a period perplexer of paranormal proportions in his cannily conceived debut feature." The Hollywood Reporter
