A meditation on grief, loss and uncertainty, Until First Light sees a man (Darren Frank) return home to his mother and sister in the wake of his brother’s tragic death on the family farm. Shot with available light and set against the backdrop of the Canadian prairies, the film captures a smouldering and oftentimes beautifully brittle landscape that matches the rawness of the emotions portrayed. With this minimal approach, Armstrong has fashioned a distinctive debut feature situated in a crepuscular world of liminal spaces, accentuated by avant-rock musician Jim O’Rourke’s sparse score.
