‘Before dawn, people will rise, and other people will take away their hope.’
Before Dawn is an incredible short film from Hungary, by a director called Balint Kenyeres. It has no dialogue, no music, and is filmed in one long shot, and it is all the more powerful for being so minimal. It’s about people trafficking, and it’s one of the most striking pieces of film making I’ve ever seen.
You can get hold of it on issue 13 of Special1o magazine, a good source of alternative visuals. It would be great to show on refugee sunday, or at an event raising awareness of people trafficking.
