THE DARKNESS

Screening

Gustavo (Brontis Jodorowsky) and his three children live alone in a fog-shrouded wood. There are allusions to some recent apocalypse. Twilight seems permanent here, prompting Gustavo to carefully shutter out all light from their home when it is time to sleep. But there are more troubling things than the midnight penumbra, such as 12-year-old Argel’s strange dreams—or an apparent haunting.
The second film in Daniel Castro Zimbrón’s trilogy of light, shot by the gifted cinematographer Diego García (Neon Bull, Cemetery of Splendor) is a stunning work of primal fear and atmosphere, drawing us into the darkness, just as it reminds us why we are instinctively afraid of it.
