Storyline

Piercing Brightness is a science fiction film directed by internationally acclaimed artist Shezad Dawood. The film utilizes science fiction as a backdrop from which to contest fixed notions of race, migration and identity. The plot interweaves elements of documentary, within a character-driven narrative involving the different and changing communities in Preston, in the North of England and points to Lancashire's position as having the highest UFO sighting rate and the fastest growing Mainland Chinese population in the UK. The film combines digital and analogue processes, high production values and low-fi aesthetics to tell a story through both its narrative and distortions of time brought about by experiments with the various formats used. The story begins with Jiang and Shin, a young Chinese boy and girl, who land in a spacecraft outside of Preston. They have been sent on a mission to retrieve the 'Glorious 100' - agents who were sent to this planet millennia ago to study and ... Written by Kate Parker

Complete and utter rubbish
16 January 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

There is absolutely no plot in this godforsaken trash. None whatsoever. Nor is there any meaningful dialog. However the wardrobe is just out of this world for sheer creativity; especially the woman with Cheerios and Froot-Loops glued to the side of her face.

The ending is just as senseless as the rest of it. This pile of junk rated at 6.2 and now it's down to 5.8.

It can only be surmised that this garbage is being voted down by people actually having viewed the movie after the cast and crew voted it up.

Avoid this moronic trash, unless severe brain pain is an uncontrollable fetish of yours. Seriously, it's bad.
