Bloody and beautiful fantasy realism in The Neolith, available to watch online now
‘STRIKING, PRIMAL… THERE IS SOMETHING VERY SPECIAL GOING ON WITH THE NEOLITH’
DANNY LEIGH – CHIEF FILM CRITIC, THE FINANCIAL TIMES
“Too much animal distorts the civilised man.
Too much civilization makes sick animals.” – CARL JUNG
Amidst a beautiful and unforgiving landscape in an unknowable time and place, a mysterious individual takes action against a pack of bloodthirsty outsiders whose thirst for dominance is thriving, with brutal and bloody consequences…
A bold, innovative and visually stunning short work, The Neolith recalls the fantastic realism and epic scope of Vikings and Game of Thrones while remaining entirely unique in its storytelling and style. Combining aspects of mysticism, Jungian theories of the shadow self and Gnosticism, the film defies interpretation leaving powerfully raw and violent images that linger in the mind.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Daniel Boocock (The Desolate One), The Neolith stars Jak Corrie and Dan Boie Kratfeldt.
