‘In the dark, dark room’ explores what happens to the psyche when we are isolated in nature – what rituals, fears and desires take over?

The film was shot by Siouxzi Connor and Uferlos Studios in the dark winter of 2016 in the depths of an ancient Finnish forest – the site of a pagan bear cult – during an artist residency with Mustarinda and completed in Uferlos Studios in Berlin.
