A SPELL TO WARD OFF THE DARKNESS
Cine-X Q&A with director Ben Russell
2013 / France, Germany, Estonia / 98 min / Format: DCP
Directors: Ben Rivers, Ben Russell Cast: Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe Print Source: Kim Stim

This experimental gem has been an official selection at over forty film festivals worldwide. It follows musician-artist Robert A. A. Lowe (of Lichens and Om) as he navigates three spaces: an Estonian commune where he is surrounded by voices and stories; a forest where he exists in silenceFriday and solitude; and a black metal concert where he embraces loud discordant noises by leading the band. Full of breathtaking scenery and stunning camerawork, this film takes the viewer on a mesmerizing journey that won’t soon be forgotten. John Semley of Slant Magazine wrote about the film, “Captures a kind of essential form of self-expression (and pleasure) that exceeds categorization, creating a shared experience between the musicians, the filmmakers, and the viewer that feels sublime.”
