“Days of Gray”

Tweetable Logline:

A timeless tale of a young boy & girl’s otherworldly adventures. A modern day fantastical silent film, scored by Hjaltalín!

Elevator Pitch:

“Days of Gray” is a timeless tale set to an original score by Icelandic band Hjaltalín. A boy journeys away from his family’s strange yet tradition-bound home to the far side of a forbidden boundary. There, a girl leads him through an even stranger place of distortions and mutations. It is a world naturalistic yet awry, inviting yet fearsome, epic in darkness and in hope.

Together, the boy and girl discover a world that is theirs and, in the process, who they might be.

About the Production:

“We’re making this film to reconnect with the sacred and delightful side of old-time movies, and create a real event. “Days of Gray” is being filmed completely silent, then Hjaltalín will create an original score for the film, and in true hommage to silent cinema tradition, Hjaltalín will perform the score live!

“We want to create a truly magical experience, a timeless tale, a real movie like people don’t make anymore that will transcend day-to-day life and make people dream.” — Ani Simon-Kennedy
