Breathe the Night

Elisa finds herself in a challenging position: a new chapter of her life begins, but she must find her way through uncertainty. In a way she feels alone in Toronto, a city that although seemingly welcoming, she barely knows. But Elisa is also determined to take a daunting step, that of proving you can take care of something bigger than yourself.

Álvaro Girón

Álvaro Girón is a Colombian/Canadian filmmaker. His work in film includes the writing and direction of the narrative short “Breathe the Night” (20), the documentary “The Names of Solidarity” (13), and the shorts “Still Life with Echo” (08) and “Bleiben” (06). Not only does he still believe there are yet-to-be-heard sounds in the plane most of us inhabit, he sets out to find them encroaching the daily cacophony, or alternatively tries to create them in a small makeshift lab where time always seems to look back. As Salvaged Media, he does freelance conceptualization, videography and sound recording for audiovisual promotional videos in Canada and Colombia.
