“A bitter view of rural Spanish life rarely matched since Mario Camus' 80s brutal backwoods classic The Holy Innocents.” - VarietyUnfurling through six interconnected parts, each pushing a different character to the fore, The Night of the Sunflowers is a gripping and impeccably acted thriller that creates a dense picture of a crime and its nefarious ripple effect. Pedro and Esteban are two speleologists who plan on investigating a recently discovered cave to determine its scientific value. Esteban's girlfriend, Gabi, comes along for the ride and waits patiently beside the cave's entrance for the two to emerge. When they finally do, they find her in a heightened state of shock that propels them to misguided vengeance.Highly celebrated on the Spanish national awards circuit.
