Remembering the Nights in Safe Haven
A drag performer rendez-vous with their many personalities during the after hours. A man is taken over by his surrogate lover, made of textile. Two brothers dance in an empty nightclub.
Remembering the Nights in Safe Haven is a short film in three parts. The starting point of this project is the sudden loss of nightlife due to the Covid-19 pandemic and itsdetrimental effect on the social fabric of queer people. The film addresses this loss by means of fantasy scenes, combined with performances and activities that would have takenplace if nightlife was still alive. These fictitious events suggest a mental state of suddenly having to adapt to our new reality.
