Figures in a nightscape is a shortfilm commemorating the anniversary of the film guild in Biel (CH), founded in 1949.
Sinopsis: A film club offers midnight screenings. Afterwards, the members make their way home alone through the empty streets of the city. A poetic film about the nocturnal urban landscape of a medium-sized, middle-class Swiss city. And does something happen this time on their way home – or not? Film or reality? Or a film in a film? Or a film in the cinema?
