Interwoven with dream-like, poetically bleak tableaux vivants, this Spanish triptych is a journey to the roots of Spanish fascism. When the Spanish Civil War is over, Anxo returns to his home village in rural Galicia, which he had fled during the war. He encounters worried victors and vanquished who are concerned that because of him they will have to relive their suppressed memories of the war. Staged with amateur actors and a screenplay based on excerpts from plays, memoirs and letters from political prisoners, Longa Noite is a powerful, atmospheric statement against forgetting.
