In 1974 the Dolores Cyclone flooded the town of Charco Redondo and its inhabitants were forced to go into exile and found a new community. Four decades later, the Salinas Tello, an afromestizo family, lets us enter their privacy, while preparing the town's patronal celebration. Through them, we learn about their daily lives. THEY MADE US THE NIGHT draws a sketch about their identity, marked by tonales, devils and cyclones.
