A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness

Rivers, Ben
Genre: 
Winner of Best International Documentary at the Torino Film Festival, this acclaimed film follows a man at three disparate moments in his life; as a member of a small nudist commune on an Estonian island, alone in the wilderness of Northern Finland, and as the singer of a neo-pagan black metal band in Norway. Three moments for a radical proposition for the creation of utopia in the present. Winner of the New Vision Award at CPH:DOX - Copenhagen International Documentary Festival. "A cerebral encounter of the cinematic kind...delivers on its grand title's promise." - Nikola Grozdanovic, The Playlist "The atmosphere is mythic and pervasive. The imagery, of night and nature and dancing flames ..." - A.A. Dowd, AV Club
