The disappearance of a beloved priest leads to shocking revelations in the true crime documentary WHERE THERE IS DARKNESS, which makes its Omaha, NE debut from July 8 to 14, 2019.
Where There is Darkness, a feature-length documentary by Stella Mar Films, has been selected by over 50 film festivals since being completed last year and has won more than 30 awards.
Told with a combination of actual footage, eyewitness videos, and re-enactments, the story follows the nationwide search for Fr. Rene Robert, a beloved priest who went missing from St. Augustine, Florida in 2016.
The film culminates in a series of shocking revelations and the discovery of a 20-year-old letter in which Fr. Rene seemed to foretell his own fate.
Stella Mar Films, the independent production company responsible for Where There Is Darkness, is based near Orlando, and filmmakers Sean Bloomfield, Cimela Kidonakis, and Jessi Hannapel will present the film in Omaha and answer questions from the audience.
Audiences describe the film as both "riveting" and "challenging." One recent viewer commented that seeing the Where There Is Darkness "was the most emotionally powerful experience I've ever had in a movie theater."
The filmmakers believe that the film will captivate viewers in Omaha as well, just as their previous film, Apparition Hill, did in 2016.
