Set at the dawn of the space-race, over the course of one night in 1950s New Mexico, a young switchboard operator and a radio DJ uncover a strange frequency that could change their lives, their small town, and all of Earth… forever.
THE VAST OF NIGHT falls down the rabbit hole of the Twilight Zone and carefully stitches together a narrative scavenger hunt through dropped phone calls, AM radio signals, secret reels of tape forgotten in a library, switchboards, crossed patchlines and an anonymous phone call. With confounding tracking camera work throughout, rapid fire dialogue and period perfect jargon,THE VAST OF NIGHT drops viewers into a time and town hidden away from outsiders. And whose mysteries only present themselves to those curious and patient enough to hear them.
THE VAST OF NIGHT will screen in the Narrative Features section at the 2019 Slamdance Film Festival.
