Black Sun is an experimental feature film about darkness. A film experience presented as a ritual journey through the dark, in which the cinema becomes an arena of inner experiences and a portal to other times, other places and other worlds.

The film begins in a small rural cottage, we see a woman put her home in order then leave and walk into the woods, where she is enveloped by the night. Once she enters the darkness of the woods we too as viewers are plunged into darkness. From this point on long sections of the film have no on-screen images but what we lose in sight we gain in sound. A rich immersive sound experience internalises vision, evoking in the mind of the viewer a journey which moves through space and time and touches on both a personal and collective experience of darkness.
