Into Darkness follows the story of writer and theologian John Hull after he lost his sight in the early 1980s. For three years he kept a diary on audiocassette - over sixteen hours in total - deconstructing his experience of blindness in relation to his family, identity and his faith.
Into Darkness is the very first time these original recordings have been heard in public. The film takes its structure from the diaries, brought to life by striking cinematography, verbatim reconstructions and creative use of archive footage. Watch the teaser trailer.
In July 2012 we filmed the first two scenes of Into Darkness. The first of these, Notes on Blindness : Rainfall, is soon to be released as a standalone short film. We are now in development for the feature, commencing principle photography in 2014.

Listen out for the launch of our crowdfunding campaign, launching on Kickstarter later this year. The campaign will give you a chance to support the film and be part of the process. Find out more about how crowdfunding works here.
