Must see!
10 September 2018 | by mariobriSee all my reviews

This, by far, is more than another independent film! It is a gem of work from the storyline to the cinematography, to the soundtrack. Peter O'Brien has accomplished a very good feature film. This was premiered at The Nyack Film Festival, Nyack, New York this past August. Running Through Darkness won "Best Feature Length Film' and 'Best Soundtrack!'
