as it got dark it got heavier

Comprised of a mixture of original and found footage, as it got dark it got heavier presents two seemingly disparate events, the 2015 Hatton Garden heist and the Wapping Dispute in 1986. Built around first-hand interviews with a crime journalist, a trade unionist, an activist and a linotype operator the film considers the way narratives are constructed in the media and beyond and the power imbalances that exist within these spaces.
