Darken is a multimedia sci-fi project set in a bizarre world of endless rooms ruled by an all-powerful being called “Mother Darken”.
In the digital prequel series Before the Dark, Darken’s citizens live in peaceful harmony under the watchful eye of Mother Darken, their altruistic overseer. Those in Darken are survivors of trauma and have been brought to Darken to forget their painful previous lives under the protection of Mother Darken. But things start to change when people start remembering their previous lives. The film picks up years later in a transformed Darken, with danger and death around every corner. A newcomer to the brutal realm must fight for survival and find allies amongst those rebelling against the rule of a self-appointed religious despot.
