Step into the belly of the Blue Whale, where the dancers are hot and the music is cool. You're handed a drink sent by a mysterious woman at the end of the bar, who invites you to take a trip on her own special rollercoaster. Brainville at Night is a stylish adventure into the film noir-ish world of Ingrid's memories and imagination. So what if the doctors tell her that she lacks insight and the ability to empathise? Nothing is going to stop Ingrid – labels like 'fronto-temporal dementia' never meant anything to her anyway. Whatever happens, she carries the love, excitement and romance of her life within her. Now if only we could convince the doctors to come along.
