    Until the Light Takes Us

    Until the Light Takes Us

    A Film by Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell

    “CRITIC’S PICK! Richly compelling and artfully shot.”
    - LA Weekly

    “Morbidly fascinating”
    - Variety

    "Incredibly Effective" - Ain't It Cool News

    "UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US is a stunning, voyeuristic window into the morbid world of Norwegian black metal, the most malevolent musical genre in existence, whose surprisingly articulate founders hold complex sets of extreme nationalist, anti-Semitic and anti-Christian beliefs. Unlike musical purveyors of evil who do so only for the sake of showmanship, these young friends actually practice what they preach, engaging in rampant church burning, suicide, and – as notoriously chronicled in the European media – murder.

    Co-directors Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell spent two years living in Oslo, where they procured the trust of ringleader Varg Vikernes (a/k/a “Count Grishnack”), architect of the criminal movement. Along with other influential members of the “Black Circle,” Vikernes gave the filmmakers unprecedented, intimate access to their shadowy world. UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US chronicles the true story behind the music and mayhem, and reveals what happened when these complicated young artists could no longer control the dangerous scene they had created. Featuring interviews with outspoken black metal fan Harmony Korine, musicians Gylve Fenriz Nagell, Varg Vikernes, Hellhammer, Faust, Abbath and Demonaz, Garm, Faust, Frost and more, and the music of Black Dice, Boards of Canada, Burzum, Darkthrone, Enslaved, Gorgoroth, Lesser, Mayhem, Múm, Sunn 0))), Thorns, and Ulver. (USA, 2009, English, 93 minutes)

    Music fans: the film Until the Light Takes Us is showing worldwide starting this month.

    This movie is a documentary about why people make black metal. It's both a movie about metalheads, and a movie about people trying to change their world with music.

    It won a ton of awards. Not bad for a DIY, shoestring budget film.

    This actually sounds pretty interesting. I heard about it on the AV Club and it sounds very evenhanded.
