"Save All Who Dare" is a poetic film that asks the question of what truly is right or wrong during a time of crisis. A timely yet timeless piece that follows the journey of two members of a cult questioning their faith, their leaders, themselves, and what the consequences would be. An allegory for our current political and pandemic climate.
“...is walking away braver than a last stand?”
"Save All Who Dare" questions the nature of faith when our deeply held convictions are challenged, inspired by the difficult questions I grappled with after being raised in a strict religious environment.
The text is designed to balance lyrical, otherworldly dialogue with universal feelings. The simplistic imagery is designed to juxtapose between the two timelines of conversation. The original score, composed by Jacob Handrich, was conceived as being two interwoven songs colliding by the end of the film.
The concept of the film was a collaborative effort of the artists involved. It stemmed from our feelings around the current state of our world – the political climate, pandemic, and the idea of community leaders vs. the individual. A timeless poetic piece that asks more questions than answers.
I desired to challenge myself as a director both practically and artistically. The time crunch and restrictions of production was a limit that had to be creatively worked within. The more abstract nature of the ideas presented of the film was a challenge to both ask important questions while remaining accessible to audiences.
