What if we lived in a world where the power supply that we take for granted everyday was no longer available to us? What would the world be like? What would our day-to-day life be like? A new and upcoming short film, 'The Dark Age', explores this idea and we're so excited for the release.
'The Dark Age' is a short film that picks up seven years after a catastrophic solar storm destroys the global power grid, plunging humanity into darkness. It follows two women from a survival colony as they track down an electronic signal they've discovered. The electronic signal eventually leads them to a deranged loner who will stop at nothing to protect his mysterious power supply. It's a gritty thriller that examines our addiction to power and confronts the real life consequences. The film stars Jeremy Dash, Manni L. Perez, and Jenna Sander.
'The Dark Age' was directed by Jonah Schwartz and written by Brian Trichon. Jonah, Brian, and Jeremy are all producers on the project.
