THE RISING LIGHT, the new film from Hollinsworth Productions for Christmas 2013, is quite unlike any other science fiction film. It's a road movie. It's an odyssey across fantastical realms and worlds. It's an alien drama that blends 50's sci-fi with existential themes, the exploration of an outsider, and a study of loss and failure. It's a tale of magic and sorcery. It's written and directed by Ansel Faraj, the filmmaker behind this summer's DOCTOR MABUSE; and it stars Nathan Wilson as Daniel - a lost stranger in a strange land; Kathryn Leigh Scott as the ethereal Aya, Daniel's "mother"; Linden Chiles as tragic magician Nikolas Winter; and Derek Mobraaten as Alex, a young man who helps Daniel along in his journey.

The entire project was conceived and shot as an Internet Webseries from October 2012-January 2013. In its early stages of post production, it was decided to scrap plans for the web series, expand on the story, and release the product as feature film. See more
