Until The Light Takes Us [Full Movie]

Until The Light Takes Us tells the story of black metal.
Part music scene and part cultural uprising, black metal rose to worldwide notoriety
in the mid-nineties when a rash of suicides, murders, and church burnings accompanied
the explosive artistic growth and output of a music scene that would forever redefine
what heavy metal is and what it stands for to other musicians, artists and music fans
world-wide. Until The Light Takes Us goes behind the highly sensationalized media
reports of "Satanists running amok in Europe" to examine the complex and largely
misunderstood principles and beliefs that led to this rebellion against both Christianity
and modern culture.

To capture this on film, directors Aaron Aites and Audrey Ewell moved to Norway
and lived with the musicians for several years, building relationships that allowed
them to create a surprisingly intimate portrait of this violent, but ultimately
misunderstood, movement. The result is a poignant, moving story thats as much about
the idea that reality is composed of whatever the most people believe, regardless of
whats actually true, as it is about a music scene that blazed a path of murder and arson
across the northern sky
