A SPELL may open and close in darkness but its particular incantation isn’t invoked in the face of the natural order of day becoming night but against a darkening of the spirit.

A film in three movements, A SPELL hones in on Brooklyn-based musician Robert AA Lowe as he moves from a collective on a small Estonian island to immerse himself in the majestic wilderness of Northern Finland, and ends with him performing with a black metal band in Norway.

Playing at the margins of documentary and ethnographic filmmaking, A SPELL is a timely call for us to welcome in the daylight.
