The stylish and thoughtful new black and white indie A Stormy Night follows two seemingly mismatched strangers who end up spending some unexpected time in one another’s company.
Marcos (played by writer-director David Moragas) arrives in New York City from Barcelona only to find out that his layover flight to San Francisco has been cancelled due to a storm. This leaves him without a place to stay. That’s how he meets Alan (Jacob Perkins), the roommate of an old college friend. Happy to help, Alan agrees to host Marcos for the night.
These two young men don’t seem to have anything in common. Nevertheless, they will have to spend twelve hours and a New York storm together. Throughout the night, a series of misunderstandings lead the boys to challenge each other’s approach to love, relationships and happiness. They both have secrets to hide that are difficult to hold. And yet, the biggest challenge might be having to say goodbye to each other the morning after.
David Moragas is a Catalan writer, director and actor based in Barcelona. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Media Communication from Pompeu Fabra University, and a filmmaking MFA at the NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. In 2018, David wrote and directed the short film Only Fools Rush In, which was presented at several international film festivals. His screenplay Two Sisters was selected by the prestigious Purple List at NYU in 2019. A Stormy Night is his first feature film and it shows tremendous promise.
