Our film collaboration The Last Year of Darkness has been picked up by the infinitely cool MUBI after premiering at CPH:DOX, where it was awarded the Next:Wave special mention award, and screened all over the world including Queer Lisboa, Athens International Film Festival, Visions du Réel, Camden International Film Festival, Rooftop films, and now the upcoming SXSW Sydney.
This captivating documentary feature film is a bass-heavy and neon-coloured portrait of the alternative Chinese youth in a country in constant state of change that now threatens the underground club Funky Town. A haven for outsiders who live every weekend like it’s their last – and it might soon be.
We're proud to have contributed our distinctive full sonic treatment as well as music supervision (David Bowie, Beyoncé, Lafontaine) to help bring this powerful story to life.
