The Light - Short film


An emotionally fragile immigrant (Yao Johnson) pulls up at a set of traffic lights at a junction late one night. For reasons unbeknownst the lights refuse to change and the man, within his heightened state, feels he cannot just "cross the line" so decides to wait it out instead.

Soon after an urban man (Terence Anderson) pulls up, and in no particular rush himself, strikes up a conversation with the immigrant. What ensues, blurs the line between reality and the metaphysical, and changes the course of one of their lives, forever.

The Light features in Shadow and Act's 10 best horror shorts of 2016, was shortlisted at the UK African Diaspora short film competition and was accepted at the Access Code film festival.
