WPRB and the International House of Philadelphia are proud to present a screening of Until the Light Takes Us on Wednesday, September 2nd at 7:00 PM. This screening takes place at the International House of Philadelphia (3701 Chestnut Street).
In 1991, Norwegian churches started to burn down. While reporters and police scrambled for answers, more and more churches went up in flames. They had no leads until Varg Vikernes, one of the architects of an underground music-art-political scene known as “Black Metal” took credit and was quickly arrested. The media ran with a largely fabricated story of satanic rituals, abductions and sacrifices. Soon others took these cues, creating an escalating cycle of fiction-fueled reality. This film reveals the true story behind the music, murders and church burnings, and shows what happened when these young men, who tried to change the world using music, art and violence, found that they could not control what they created.
After the film there will be a discussion with directors Audrey Ewell and Aaron Aites, so don’t miss out on this special event!
Tickets are $8 for students + seniors; $10 general admission. You can purchase online or a 1/2 hour before showtime at the Box Office.
