In the midst of a snowstorm, a journalist dives back into the memories of her most recent investigation. Following the sudden eclipse of star figure skater Violeta Martínez, the journalist travels to Violeta’s hometown, a tropical village on the West coast of Mexico. There she encounters an intricate labyrinth of clues and wrong paths, surreal tales, and enigmatic characters. As the story deviates and plunges into the night. A world fades into another.
Desvío de noche (Night Detour) is filled with mysteries. In particular, it makes it uncertain whether what we see is reality or an elaborate cinematic construct to make us believe what we see really happens. The plot unfolds in the background of a town in Mexico surrounded by jungle and the sea, two natural environments that are simultaneously significant and ominous. It’s in this place where Violetta Martínez, a young figure skating star, suddenly disappeared. A journalist chases her trail but, as the title suggests, only finds detours. Detours that will transform the film into another. The reconstruction of memories and how memory works is an important part of this hunting story. On Desvío de noche (Night Detour) when the night approaches, the mystery becomes part of the landscape. (Sung MOON)
