Dark, Almost Night - Borys Lankosz Dark, Almost Night - Borys Lankosz
BIFFF, the Brussels International Fantastic Film Festival, is a major event in the Brussels cinemagoer’s diary. The 37th edition will take place this year from 09 until 21 April, and once again BOZAR will play host to the fantastic, the supernatural and the occult on its screens. This year, in International Premiere, Dark, Almost Night will be on the programme in the presence of its director : Borys Lankosz.

In the small Polish city of Walbrzych, on the border with Germany, a series of mysterious child kidnappings take place. The police are at a loss and journalist Alicja Tabor starts looking into the case in the place she once called home. Along the way, she finds clues of dramatic events that took place decades earlier. In doing so, the investigative journalist–as a rule not easily frightened–has to face the family secrets she has been sweeping under the carpet for all of her adult life. She can no longer avoid the confrontation with her childhood and finally, everything comes together: the child disappearances, the war-tainted past, the legend of the Nazi gold train, and her own fate…
