Abstract

Night, a time everyone experiences and few contemplate. It is a time of darkness both figuratively and literally. Darkness of the soul and of the mind, when some rest and others are restless. We live in an age of endless day where the night is nothing more than a time to be blinded by electronic light. With this in mind the question becomes how was our night seen in the past? Also, how was the night and the darkness represented throughout time? To answer these questions I researched the topic of night and made a film entitled 0300 - 0430.

The film was only recorded between three and four-thirty in the morning and delved into what occurs at night and by whom. Moving from mountain nightscapes to bustling cities the film explores what it means to be up at night. Working, partying or at rest each has a part to play.
