The mysterious first images of a short film, shot in Tokyo with Eric Wareheim (Master of None)
Pen Films and French director Jean-Baptiste Braud are happy to release a preview of the short film In the Still Night, featuring “king of awkward US comedy” Eric Wareheim (Netflix’s Master of None, Tim and Eric). A 15-minutes drama shot in Tokyo, In the Still Night explores a darker side of Eric’s talent.
Matthew Hyla (Eric Wareheim), an American art curator staying in Hotel Gajoen Tokyo, is organizing an exhibition to display the work of young artists. Hurt and distracted by a recent breakup, and left disorientated by his very limited understanding of Japanese, Matthew soon gets lost in the labyrinth of corridors lined with Japanese masterpieces dating from the Showa period.
Now on his own, he wanders broken-hearted through this maze of artworks and allows himself to be carried away by daydreams. That is, until he has a surreal encounter, the kind that will leave its mark forever.
The film, a French-Japanese-American short movie where glances and silences are just as important as words, is soon to be released.
