Super Night Shot is a magical journey through the nighttime streets of a not too distant city. In this case, it’s Vancouver that becomes the film set of this impromptu movie full of surprises, with the unsuspecting public as co-stars. Comical, moving and utterly unpredictable, Super Night Shot elevates the minutiae of everyday life into the glitz and glamour of a big-screen blockbuster.

The movie is filmed exactly 60 minutes before you come to watch it. Declaring a “war on anonymity,” four performers/activists meet in downtown Vancouver, arm themselves with video cameras and synchronized watches, and head out onto the streets. One hour later they meet again and present what they have filmed to the waiting audience. Super Night Shot is a celebration of serendipitous meetings with strangers and delights in the randomness of urban existence. Anything can happen, and usually does…

Super Night Shot has been filmed/performed nearly 200 times—from Siberia to Bangalore—in four languages on six continents. Celebrating 20 years in 2014, the seven Berlin-based artists that form the Gob Squad Arts Collective search for new ways to combine media and performance, producing stage shows, video installations, radio plays, interactive live films and urban interventions.
