Screening information for the documentary film "UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US" in Houston is as follows:

"UNTIL THE LIGHT TAKES US" Film Synopsis: In 1991, Norwegian churches started to burn down, just after an underground circle of metal musicians had formed. While reporters and police scrambled for answers, more and more churches went up in flames. They had no leads until Varg Vikernes, one of the architects of an underground music-art-political scene known as BLACK METAL took credit and was quickly arrested. While in police custody, the media ran with a largely fabricated story of satanic rituals, abductions and sacrifices. Soon, other young men took those media cues, creating an escalating cycle of fiction-fueled reality. This film reveals the true story behind the music, murders and church burnings, and shows what happened when these young men, who tried to change the world using music, art and violence, found that they could not control what they created.
