Until The Light Takes Us

A new documentary film on black metal...

Directors Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell spent several years in Norway filming some of the main characters from the indigenous black metal scene to produce a new feature length documentary Until the Light Takes Us. The film tries to untangle the various motivations behind what the directors call the "part modern art movement, part terrorist movement, part rock scene" of black metal and includes interviews with Gylve “Fenriz” Nagell, Varg “Count Grishnackh” Vikernes, Jan Axel “Hellhammer” Blomberg and more.
