WE ARE ILLUMINATED 2010 | 13 mins | Trailer and Video On Demand above.
Amidst the bustle of a modern city, We Are Illuminated follows five people through one working night – a vet at a 24-hour animal hospital, a football umpire, a stage manager, a supermarket night filler and an advertising poster installer. Unconnected and unaware of each other, their worlds are separated by physical and social distance. Yet, as the night unfolds, the glow of the city's lights hint at an interconnectedness between them all. Beautiful imagery, a nocturnal soundscape and evocative music lead us along a sensory journey into the city night. We Are Illuminated is a slice of our shared 24-hour story – the invisible relationships that bind us and the fantastic ocean of light employed to show us our way.
