2019 the fourth parcae
2021 The night burns
Production: Askesis (Guendalina Folador)
Based on real events, The Night Burns is the story of Max and his friends who, for pure pleasure, steal jewellery and valuable items at concerts by setting off a substance similar to pepper spray. However, during the last robbery, the nightclub’s emergency door didn’t open, causing mayhem resulting in six fatalities.
Max and his friends are not even twenty years old. They don't know what they want, nor who they are. Their emotions are blackened by an anger that devours them, by a society that doesn’t want them. Maybe the world owes them something.
