On January 11 2022, Saul At Night, a sci-fi drama and feature debut by Cory Santilli, written by Daniel Miska (Froth and Bubble), will release on AppleTV and Altavod.
Starring Kentucker Audley (She Dies Tomorrow, American Woman, Her Smell), Suzanne Clément (Mommy, Laurence Anyways, I Killed My Mother) Stephanie Ellis (The Sleepwalker, Men in Black 3) and Acadia Colan (Ted Bundy Had a Son), Saul At Night follows Saul Capgras (Audley) as he is forced to become acclimated to isolation in a bizarre experiment. A legally imposed curfew and mandated sleeping schedule has been forced upon citizens, except Saul, the one person who rests during the day and spends his waking hours in the eerie and lonely night. Alienated from his family, Saul begins to invent ways to continue sharing his life with his wife and daughter, but things take a turn when he encounters a mysterious woman on one of his nightly wanderings.
Synopsis: As a result of a bizarre experiment, Saul Capgras is forced to become acclimated to a life of isolation at night, while the rest of the city is restricted to sleep and a mandated curfew. Saul is the only person left awake at night, and, while still living with his wife and daughter, he must discover inventive ways to experience their lives.
Saul at Night is a carefully drawn study of human nature and the nature of connections to both loved ones and strangers.
