Birmingham Library Theatre | 21:00

Featuring exclusive footage and candid interviews with key figures, Until The Light Takes Us gives a clinical insight into the roots of black metal and the distorting lens of the media.

In the early 1990s a small group of black metal musicians committed a slew of crimes including church-burnings and murder, and for a short while the world turned its cameras on Norway. American filmmakers Aites and Ewell have spent years there making a documentary about this misunderstood world, and having immersed themselves in the subject they let the people who created this scene speak for themselves. Featuring exclusive footage and candid interviews with key figures, Until The Light Takes Us gives a clinical insight into the roots of black metal and the distorting lens of the media.
