This quietly furious and life-affirming debut from Chilean filmmaker Carolina Moscoso brilliantly carries the weight of deep personal trauma. Night Shot’s images of Moscoso’s quotidian video diaries and filmed experiments as a film student undergird a narrative of her rape from eight years ago, and the re-traumatizing and discriminatory practices of an uncaring legal system that does more to protect abusers than seek justice. These two parallel tracks diverge and converge in moving, poetic ways. It is clear that Moscoso has brilliantly found a singular, powerful way of telling her own story. She avoids the violent, domineering logics of investigations while never sanitizing the events, but also resists wallowing in salaciousness or imposing emotive catharsis. Instead, we see the raw stuff of life, celebrations of birthdays, the blossoming of new love, and, most importantly, the freedom and radical resistance of filmmaking.
