FILM THREAT

I AM Norman is a refined piece of work from two talented filmmakers. It has a voice, a message, and a reason to exist. You are not ill. You are not alone.

Every once in a while, a truly unusual and striking film stops you in your tracks – when it’s a silent film that runs just about as long as your tea break but packs a considerable punch, you know you’re really onto something.

This Director’s Debut Film Was Selected For

Robert De Niro’s Film Festival. 

Horror Buzz

Featuring no dialog outside of a cryptic physical language that both parties seem to comprehend on some level but which eludes any firm translation, His Hands exists to be pondered more than understood. 

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.
