Eryk Rocha has his first fiction film after a career in documentaries. He does not see a difference in storytelling or importance in the two genre, he actually does not see the genre specification. He has a strong and clear view and cinema is his tool to tell it.
Burning Night: Down on his luck and recently divorced, Paulo (Boliveira) has begun driving a cab around Rio, hoping he’ll make enough to send his ex money to support their ten-year-old son. He mostly works nights, so in addition to his encounters with a colourful variety of customers, colleagues, cops and others, he must cope with loneliness, fatigue and new faces in his life.
