Pitch Black

17m Documentary, Student, Drama 2023

Shot on Sony FX6 & Alpha 7S III

Pitch Black takes us inside the claustrophobic worlds of three young men who fell down the ‘blackpill’ rabbit hole and are struggling to reckon with their actions.

Mark and Luke now claim to be ex-incels and are trying to shed their destructive mindset - but have their beliefs really changed or are echoes of a hateful ideology still ringing out? Aaron is on the opposite path; a downward spiral into the abyss. Full of self-loathing and rage, he lives in a bleak reality that revolves around filming self-destructive ‘blackpill’ vlogs in his car. Pitch Black is a chilling docu-drama that radically challenges the documentary form and unpacks how small acts online can lead to horrific acts of violence offline.
