Directed by Esther May Campbell, Lights Years is about a family of five living in disparate worlds; merely revolving around each other but never fully connecting.
Ewan has a compulsive fear of inheriting his mother’s illness, while Ramona lives inside her head inventing a passionate love story. Only the youngest, Rose, is grounded in belief that her family resembles a constellation – hanging together even if they are light years apart. When their father disappears, Rose embarks on a lone journey to find their sick mother.
The film moves between distinct characters and unique landscapes, but always with an inkling of a greater life force threading the stories and keeping the relationships alive. Steeped in enigma, deeply poignant images gradually culminate in a divine dawn of enlightenment.
Organised with the support of the British Council.
