A Spell To Ward Off The Darkness

A SPELL TO WARD OFF THE DARKNESS follows an unnamed character through three seemingly disparate moments in his life. With little explanation, we join him in the midst of a 15-person collective on a small Estonian island; in isolation in the majestic wilderness of Northern Finland; and during a concert as the singer and guitarist of a black metal band in Norway. Marked by loneliness, ecstatic beauty and an optimism of the darkest sort.

Starring musician Robert AA Lowe (best known for his intense live performances under the name LICHENS and as a member of the band OM) in the lead role, A SPELL TO WARD OFF THE DARKNESS lies somewhere between fiction and non-fiction – it is at once a document of experience and an experience itself, an inquiry into transcendence that sees the cinema as a site for transformation.

This screening is a collaboration between SPACE Gallery and The Oak and The Ax.

Due to a performer’s possible Covid-19 exposure and rain in the forecast, the status of the July 25th Steve Gunn and William Tyler show at Greenwood Garden is unclear. We will update all ticket holders and the public on Saturday, July 24th with more information.
