Acquainted With the Night | 2010
An exploration of nighttime phenomena, customs and rituals from sunset to sunrise. Comprised of twelve chapters which correspond to the twelve hours of an "ideal" night, starting at 6PM and ending at 6AM. Each chapter serves as a point of departure for the stories of how the world changes when the sun sets, revealing the dark truths, beauty and the dangerous consequences of a world that never sleeps. From millions of bats filling the dusk skies of Austin Texas to a solitary conservationist measuring light pollution on a hilltop in Utah; from a team of warriors engaged in a midnight Easter "rocket war" in Greece to bicycle cops keeping the peace at closing time in Toronto's Clubland.
