Darkness Visible + Q&A

October 30 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

DARKNESS VISIBLE is a supernatural thriller set in India. London-raised Ronnie is distraught when his mother, Suleka, suddenly goes missing and then mysteriously turns up in a Kolkata hospital. Ronnie follows, discovering an extended family his mother never talked about, and a strange feeling stirring inside him as he visits his “homeland” for the first time.

 

Before Ronnie can unravel what brought her to India, Suleka dies in an apparent ritual killing, with more deaths pointing to a series of past murders that stopped 28 years ago when Suleka left India with baby Ronnie.

 

As the darkness within Ronnie grows and the murders reach their zenith, all roads lead to the feared witch of Kolkata’s insane asylum–Rakhee.

 

Starring Jaz Deol (Viceroy’s House), Sayani Gupta (Fan, Margarita with a straw) and Seema Biswas (Bandit Queen)
Cinematography by Robert Baumgartner (Blindspotting, Midway)
Edited by Jon Harris (127 Hours, The Woman in Black, Trainspotting 2)
Written and directed by Neil Biswas  (Bradford Riots. Skins, Second Generation)

 

“Though presented as genre cinema, with ritualised serial slayings, demonic mysticism, hallucinatory nightmare sequences and the impending threat of apocalypse, Ronnie’s quest for identity reflects experiences that will be familiar to anyone returning to roots that were once severed… Ronnie’s journey is an Oedipal one”   Anton Bitel
