Followed by a Q&A with Daranas, this projection will be the first public screening of the film in 2016, after last year's successful festival itinerary, which included stops at Singapore, India, Yale University, Cuba, Trinidad & Tobago and Scotland, where the movie had its world premiere at the Glasgow Short Film Festival.
In the words of New Jersey Film Festival director, Albert G. Nigrin, Twilight is «a stunningly beautiful short film about a young woman [Mónica Molinet] who works as a clown in a traveling circus (…) [and] meets a little boy [Kevin Serra] with a skin disease that doesn't allow him to have contact with direct sunlight».
Serra's performance was awarded during the last Muestra Joven, where the film also received recognitions for its sound recording (Irina Carballosa), cinematography (Alejandro Menéndez) and production (Lila Falcón / Daranas / Reinel García), being this a combined effort between fila20 filmes, ICAIC, ICRT, EICTV and the University of Arts, with the support of Ludwig Foundation, AHS, the independent group Jenova Pro and the Spanish lab Aracne DC.
