Screens with Wolf.
Set in a lush world resembling a cross between post apocalyptic Africa and 18th century Europe, SUMMER LIGHT explores a young boy’s vile existence imprisoned in a junkyard by his master, Glack.
Travelers come and go, peruse Glack’s wares, barter and sometimes buy.
When one day an aristocratic gentleman arrives with eyes for the boy, Glack’s greed overcomes him. As for the boy, the opportunity is not about commodities, but about longheld visions of freedom and happiness.
This early, rarely screened short film was directed by Aaron Walker, director of the award-winning feature BURY THE HATCHET.
