Persephone struggles upwards, bringing Spring with her arrival. Perhaps… the persistent spirit of a woman endeavors to free herself from restraint and repression and struggles from confinement to freedom, from darkness to the light of renewal. Directed by Mariel McEwan.
Against the Dark of Night. Three mysterious figures move against an alien landscape as the encroaching darkness threatens their extinction. One generation gives way to the next in a growing ritual of awareness and reaction. This is a story as ancient as the fear of the dark and the necessity to triumph over adversity. Set in an alien landscape, Against the Dark of Night is modern creation myth, exploring themes of disaster and renewal; fear and hope for the future of the next generation.
