Synopsis

Inspired by real people, debut filmmaker Leah Stipic brings us Darkest Before Dawn: a thought-provoking, experimental short film. Combining live and animation in a graphic novel style, this tour-de-force is visually stunning, surreal and dream-like.

The film tells the story of a heroin addict on the brink of losing himself to his addiction. As dusk falls upon the city he meets others who have also fallen on hard times and decides to fight for a second chance as he realises that oftentimes, one needs to fall into the darkest depths of the night before seeing the light at dawn.
