Screen can unveil the first trailer for Valentin Merz’s debut film De Noche Los Gatos Son Pardos (At Night All Cats Are Black) which is set to premiere in the international competition at this year’s Locarno Film Festival (August 3-13.)

Italian sales outfit The Open Reel has world rights for the film except Switzerland where Vinca Film will distribute.

Set during the shoot of a costume drama film in the countryside, events take an odd turn when the director suddenly disappears.

De Noche Los Gatos Son Pardos is produced by Switzerland’s Andrea Film.
