From pagan re-enactors to failed communes, black metal festivals to Arctic hermits, and the forever Golden Hour to the Northern Lights, A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness follows a nameless hero in an otherworldly search for a spiritual existence in a modern era.

MUBI's take

The latest film by award-winning British artist & filmmaker Ben Rivers opens across the country this week. We want to celebrate with his stunning collaboration with US artist Ben Russell, a rich work of abstract storytelling, an avant-garde travelogue, and a resonant odyssey through ways of living.
