In "NIGHT" a small but arguably racist and inconsiderate gesture changes the relationship between women from different backgrounds. The film shows that micro-aggressions which people might not think of as racist can still hurt others, making people think twice about their seemingly harmless actions.

The film premiered at the Sarasota Film Festival and was selected for multiple nationwide festivals, including the Oscar qualifying Nashville Film FestivalNIGHT won several awards at the Trinity Film Festival in Connecticut and CineYouth Chicago International Film Festival
