Light Years (2015)
A Fresh New Way to Look at the Family Universe
There is no doubt that imagination protects from pain. And kids master in that. What they see beyond the sky is nothing less than "God's Hat", so there's no surprise when they believe that a Mum's or a Dad's life is forever. Like the one of a star which remains visible even if dead, being "light years" distant from us. A family can be a constellation of stars: they keep illuminating each other's life although they are no more. What if one of those glittering stars is a dying mother whose brain is collapsing but not her love for her 3 kids? The younger, Rose, is only 8 but she "knows" inside of herself that her mum is still there for her and will protect her as a "God's Hat". Talented British helmer Esther May Campbell wrote and directed her first long feature film like a wonder-dream, full of amazing audio/visual ideas that stir the audience and satisfy the critics. Nothing is there by chance, like a lyrical symphony sounding powerful and tender at the same time. Acclaimed at Venice Critic's Week 2015. Can't wait to watch her second feature film!
