"Henry is an enigma,
wrapped up in a riddle,
laced with a lie"
a fast car.
It can't be 'just'
a nightmare, if you're
not even asleep
The 5th Shadow is from first time writer/ director David Sparx and follows Henry Blank, a middle aged, burnt out artist, on a dark and surreal odyssey into the icy depths of his own hell.
His genius is gone, his wife has run off and the only thing left is a house full of echoes. Chased out of his mind by fear, Henry descends through his past, witnesses his own birth and looks death in the ..... headlights, but it's a chance encounter with a beautiful jazz singer that will change Henry's life forever.
She offers meaning, hope and together they dissolve time but can she be trusted or is she just bait, luring Henry deeper into chaos where the line between nightmare and reality no longer exists?
If Henry has any chance of escape, he must complete his life's work but ultimately he must learn to forgive.
The things is, there is only one way out and it's on the other side of hell.
The 5th Shadow is currently in post production and seeking further support.
