Short film, sci- fi/fantasy/drama, 2013, 11 min

“ Through Darkness was the first collaboration between the Edge Hill University (UK) and FAMO in Pisek (CZ). It united Lewis Hancock with Nina Scamborova both of whom were keen to undertake the challenge of bringing Through Darkness to a cinema screen. The film is about taking the journey into the unknown. Something both these film makers were about to do themselves.”
