CONCRETE NIGHT

DIRECTOR: PIRJO HONKASALO - FINLAND

In a run-down Helsinki ghetto, 14-year-old Simo spends 24 hours with his dangerous older brother Ilkka as he prepares to go to prison. As they talk and drink and explore the concrete jungle they’re trapped in, both Simo and Ilkka find themselves pushed to the very edge by a city that wants to forget they exist. Based on the acclaimed cult novel of the same name, Concrete Night’s lustrous black and white images hauntingly portray a seething, urban underworld of discarded men and women who power big-city dreams. “Stunning to look at and chilling at its core . . . a visual knockout.”—The Hollywood Reporter. Winner of six Finnish film awards, including Best Film, Best Director, and Best Cinematography and this year’s Best Foreign Language Film Oscar submission.
