    • Synopsis
    • Philip Ullich is on the brink of taking over the family firm when confronted with the spectacle of his dead ancestors appearing. With a murder, a séance, fake identities, a drawing-room showdown and a revolution, over one wild night Philip is given the ride of his life.
      But when he discovers a terrible family secret he must decide what to do, even if it means losing what he wants. THE NIGHT OF A 1000 HOURS is a madcap tragi-comedy about acknowledging the past and atoning for it.
      It is the latest, astonishing film project by Virgil Widrich, the creator of the short films "Copy Shop" (nominated for an Academy Award in 2001) and "Fast Film" (invited to 289 film festivals and winner of 36 international film awards).
