Every night, a girl, a boy and an elderly technician meet in a little cinema, sharing tales that capture their fancy. Together, they act out magnificent fables from around the world, including stories set in Tibet, medieval Europe, an Aztec Kingdom, the African plains, and the Land of the Dead. Silhouetted characters are set against backgrounds that burst with color and kaleidoscopic patterns, as animation legend Michel Ocelot (KIRIKOU AND THE SORCERESS) pays homage to the films of early animation pioneer Lotte Reiniger. TALES OF THE NIGHT will whisk viewers of all ages off to enchanted lands full of dragons, werewolves and sorcerers.
