The Light Refracts into the Shadows
ALT | International Shorts
When an aging man’s glasses get broken, he is thrust into a hallucinatory journey of self-discovery that has him questioning his world view, both literally and figuratively. The Light Refracts into the Shadows is a visually fabulous film, with very good camera work and visual effects to illustrate his varying perceptions and refract his wandering, forgotten memories through a surreal atmosphere. It shows real directorial vision. And it is also the story of a man who has suffered both literal and metaphorical myopia being forced to face up to his past, his relationship with his wife and all the things he never noticed before.
