director: Guillym Davenport
original title: Pitch Black
running time: 16 min.
synopsisInspired by the stories of three protagonists involved in the misogynistic incel subculture, this short hybrid film presents the manifestations and sources of patriarchal extremism, which is increasingly escaping from virtual space into the real world.
“The term [incel] has become so detached from the original meaning that it´s become useless.”
