[D]arkest Hour is a short film tapping into the collective mind of Britain’s youth in a post-brexit climate. Voteless and voiceless, the film provides a platform to hear the reactions and experiences of the generation that will grow up to contend with Britain’s departure from the EU the most. Since it’s release Darkest Hour has become a phenomenal success, winning short film competition Homespun Yarns and being picked up by Vimeo as staff pick of the week.
We caught up with the director, Thomas Ralph, to ask about his choice of representation in the film, artistic neutrality and what challenges are facing film-makers in post-brexit Britain.
