Black Smoke Rising

Struggling to find anything positive to say at his domineering brother’s eulogy, Jonah, an embittered, cynical and grief stricken guitar player, reflects on the task set in the will of his newly deceased sibling: to travel across the country to find the perfect spot to scatter his ashes. What his brother didn’t tell him was that he would be coming along for the ride too – and not for pleasure. Shot in stark and stunning black and white around the UK “Black Smoke Rising” is an intimate and emotional drama portraying a one-man road trip. This is a portrayal of an internal journey to come to terms with loss, and the realisation that to find the positives in others you must first find them in yourself.
