Out of Darkness

andrew-gower-stillAndrew played one of the roles in Out of Darkness, an independent short film by Manjinder Virk. It deals with the impact of death, as an Aid worker’s story is told through nine different voices.

“Intriguing and thought provoking…” Mark Kermode.

“Virk’s film is both elegantly simple in its execution and profoundly affecting in its impact. Unflinching and emotionally raw, it explores our relationship with the ultimate taboo subject: death. The result is devastating.” Wendy Ide, The Times film critic

“For all its experimental rigour and rejection of dramatic conventions, Out of Darkness is intensely, nakedly human. If it is at first disorientating, it is then pleadingly raw in its message.” Tom Seymour, Little White Lies

Tom Hiddleston, Monica Dolan, Jimmy Akingbola, Christine Bottomley, Riz Ahmed, Asheq Akhtar and Noma Dumezweni were also involved in the film.

The film was one of the official selections of the 57th BFI London Film Festival, the Aesthetica Film Festival (Winner of Best Drama and Best Overall film), the East End Film Festival and the Shorts shorts festival, Tokyo.

You can buy a digital copy on Amazon (it is also available in other countries) or watch it on vimeo.
