The film begins with the protagonist’s birth in the old world and follows him on a voyage of self-discovery. As he works through the manifestations of his self-doubt, he emerges into the new world to revel in a sensual, cheeky celebration of contemporary club dance and music.
Set in a succession of museum galleries and cavernous white spaces, “Oíche” (Night) is a celebration of dichotomy and diversity through the power of ecstatic dance.
