Behind an omnipresent crosshair one sees the bombing of houses and people under fire exclusively from the perspective of onboard cameras of French or American military helicopters during their missions in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan. Thermal imaging cameras turn night into day; everything is a potential target.
Simultaneously brutal and laconic, THERE WILL BE NO MORE NIGHT unfolds asan extraordinary anti-war film situated between reality and loss of reality, day and night, proximity and distance, power and morality. The aesthetics of the images leave plenty ofroom for questions about humanity and war and how technical means and military indoctrination influence the perception of the world and vision itself.
