Filmmaker’s statement

“Painful memories and difficulty dealing with them have been important themes in my latest short films.

These films have explored complicated love relationships that could not move forward because of unsolved problems. Après la nuit deals with breaking and entering and the fragile state of fear and violation it leaves its victims in.

The character tries to connect with her last memory of happiness and realizes that, even at that time, she escaped her relationship because of her fear. Now, she must reconcile with her past in order to move forward.”
