Secret diary of a call boy

BROTHERS OF THE NIGHT is a highly stylized portrait of a group of young Bulgarian men of mostly Roma descent living and working in Vienna. Having travelled abroad to help support their families, they soon realize that taking care of themselves is difficult enough and in Patric Chihas untraditional documentary they talk about their lives and experiences with remarkable candour. Merging interviews with scripted dreamlike scenarios, BROTHERS OF THE NIGHT has been compared to the work of Pasolini, Fassbinder and Gus van Sant.
