The GOODS from The Cinematheque
Vancouver, BC | The Cinematheque presents Québécois writer-director Sophie Goyette’s dreamy Still Night, Still Light (2016).
After five acclaimed shorts (including La Ronde, Canada’s Top Ten 2011), Goyette makes a bold transition to features with this delicate film, winner of the Bright Future Award (“best first film”) at Rotterdam.
Suffused with longing and regret, and set in a world of people haunted by the choices they’ve made and the loved ones they’ve lost, Goyette’s brave, beautiful film was shot in three countries and tells the stories of three connected characters.

“Still Night, Still Light is a testament to cinema’s ability to provide solace, and a moving articulation of the physical and metaphysical journeys we take to ease our troubled souls” (Adam Cook, VIFF).
