Until today, the endless night of Franco’s fascist regime has been throwing a shadow on to current politics in Europe. Against this background, Galician filmmaker Eloy Enciso examines his 2019 film LONGA NOITE (ENDLESS NIGHT) together with the participants at the Academy of Fine Arts Leipzig. Subsequently, different aspects will be illuminated based on the screening: the role of documentary and literary texts while developing the script, the systematic work with non-professional actors, the effects of an aesthetic minimalism as well as the possibilities and limits of a political parable in feature and documentary films.

Eloy Enciso studied documentary filmmaking at Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV in Cuba. His works were shown at Centre de Cultura Contemporània de Barcelona, at Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, at Museum of Modern Art New York (MoMA) and at Museum of the Moving Image. 2014, he received the Robert Gardner-scholarship from Harvard’s Film Study Center and participated in the Modern Mondays programme at MoMA. Enciso lives and works in Galicia.
