Under Darkness

Based on a true story in World War II Poland, a young Jewish woman struggles to survive after her family is murdered. Refusing to give up, she joins the Soviet resistance, and realizes that through photography she can remember the past while documenting for the future.

Director’s Vision

The struggle for hope in the midst of suffering and persecution is universal. Few, though, have the courage to act in the darkest moments. Faye Schulman is one such brave person who risked everything to capture, develop, and preserve photographs that remain an undeniable record and memory.

My aspiration is that my film, however inadequate, amplifies the work that Faye started and brings her incredible and inspirational story to modern audiences. Her powerful statement provides hope to us all.
