Synopsis

Medellín, Sarajevo, Beirut and Kigali… four cities marked by some of the most devastating political and humanitarian atrocities experienced in the late 20th Century. But, today, four cities that are a beacon of hope.

Through the prism of hip hop music in Medellín, the annual Beirut marathon and the burgeoning cycling federation of Kigali in Rwanda, journalist-turned-filmmaker Francesc Relea – who spent four years covering the war in Sarajevo – profiles firsthand the stunning transformation of some of the world’s most conflict-ridden hot-spots of the 1980s and 1990s. In a flip on the usual documentary fodder of tales of woe, Relea shows how displacement, genocide and destruction have been replaced with purpose, cooperation and reconciliation – and, above all else, optimism. This has all been possible due to the resilience of their inhabitants.

Featuring inspiring photography of these extremely diverse territories and an understated yet poignant soundtrack, Out of Darkness is a profound cinematic postcard from four very special cities that have risen from the ashes of trauma to dream of peace and a future they never thought possible. Playing in the Spanish Film Festival in Australia, 2017.
