As the mystery of Idris’ identity unfolds we find that nothing about him is as it seems. But before it’s all over in this battle of darkness and light, we will find that dark secrets cast long shadows. And that everything does indeed happen for a reason… a horrible, horrible reason! THE GREY AREA is a town of shadows and fog that is never black and white, a dimly lit corridor where reason is suspended and the two-sided coin of faith and insanity stands on its side. This is where the monsters live and angels fear to tread.
Think LAW & ORDER meets SUPERNATURAL then add the grittier side of one of the world’s prime vacation destinations, and you have THE GREY AREA. Created by Comika Hartford and directed by Seth Ashby, the creative team behind the short horror film BANGO (www.bangofilm.com), the story revolves around Ariel Price, a prosecutor with a perfect conviction record. When she encounters accused murderer Idris Grange, her transformation begins our descent into the unseen spiritual landscape that eventually envelopes all of the characters. The question is always “Is this madness or faith?”
“There are deeper strata of truth in cinema, and there is such a thing as poetic, ecstatic truth. It is mysterious and elusive, and can be reached only through fabrication and imagination and stylization.”
