THE KINGDOM OF SHADOWS 2016 Daniel Fawcett & Clara Pais


2016, 70 mins, HD, colour

The Kingdom Of Shadows is a mystical cinematic experience which stirs from the darkness the spirits of our ancestors and reawakens the horror of unresolved crimes and denied desires. Inspired by dreams and silent cinema, The Kingdom Of Shadows is the artists’ personal retelling of the story of Adam and Eve and their descendants. This surrealistic fantasy looks at how the actions of the past still linger with us in the present, not only is this film an exploration of the founding myths of our culture, but also the story and myths of cinema itself and how the images of cinema’s past emerge through the films we create today.
