Every so often, somebody comes along in your internet experience and simply creates a magical sort of idea that you find is resonating with you. And so it is with this short movie.
The 168 Film Festival showcases films that have been created start to finish in 168 hours, or 1 week. That is not a lot of time and the producers have to really move along smartly so to speak in order to get any kid of quality at all. it is quite a feat. Those long movies that are the subjects of all those award shows take years to create. All the movies for this festival were made in a single week.
And while I can't speak for all of them, this year's winner in the Write of Passage Spotlight Film category is pretty amazing. The producer is Doug Braddock, the director is Steve Murray. The film is shot in Auckland, New Zealand and only runs about 11 minutes long. But its an intense 11 minutes.
Take a few minutes to watch the movie, it is well worth it. It has a theme consistent with what we talk about here on A Life of Light. Which is cool.
