Close Up Culture

Ahead of the festival later this week, Close-up Culture’s James Prestridge spoke to the co-directors about their incredible resourcefulness, exploring the issue of loneliness, creating a distinct visual style, and much more.

Culture Fix

Arron Blake and Darius Shu write, direct, and produce short film, His Hands, an atmospheric psychological thriller. Shu and Blake opt not to use dialogue throughout, lending further strength to the film's richly crafted aesthetics and allowing us as viewers to use our own perspectives in exploring the intriguingly ambiguous narrative. 

Film Threat

Co-writers and directors Arron Blake and Darius Shu have grand ambitions for the intentionally ambiguous His Hands. 

UK Film Review

Cranking the atmosphere to eleven, short filmmakers Arron Blake and Darius Shu treat audiences to a smorgasbord of tension and drama with no dialogue to act as relief. The result is a compelling and piercing mystery-thriller.
