A L I G H T - A Short Documentary


A short documentary film by Emil Nils Nylander
Director: Emil Nils Nylander
Producer: Robin Knight
DOP: Haris Mlivic
Music: Trensum International
Post production: Emil Nils Nylander

A short documentary about four different African artists search for recognition, and their struggle to live off of their calling in life - to create music and be a voice for the voiceless.

The title A L I G H T is a metaphor for the main character's passion and complete dedication to their main way of communicating with the outside world - through musict. It's not only an art form but a way of life. A language spoken around the world but perhaps the strongest where it's needed the most, at places with a dark past or a complicated social and political present.
