Video: The woods are dark, deep and maybe harbouring otherworldly visitors in Ian Clark’s experimental science fiction thriller A Morning Light. This is definitely not a movie for audiences who require lot of exposition and special effects to find enjoyment. Fans of Shane Carruth, however, will want to take note.
Here’s the official description of the film, which was funded via Kickstarter:
A Morning Light is an atmospheric, sci-fi thriller focused on Zach and Ellyn — who begin to sense a strange presence has embedded itself in the forest. As they immerse themselves in the surrounding wilderness their experiences become progressively more bizarre. Do the sounds and light phenomena affecting them come from somewhere else, or is this merely an invention of their perception?
The dreamy trailer, full of moody imagery and sinister music, is certainly ambiguous.
A Morning Light is currently on the festival circuit, but will likely end up on Clark’s Vimeo page, where you can check out his earlier films, too.
