The Afterlight is a dreamy cinematic collage from director Charlie Shackleton (Beyond Clueless). Compiled of fragments of hundreds of films from around the world, the film brings together an ensemble cast of actors with one thing in common: each is no longer alive. Together, they contend with a fragile existence lived solely through these traces of their work.
The Afterlight itself exists as a single 35mm film print. Further eroding every time it screens, the film is a living document of its life in circulation. Eventually it will disappear entirely.
This screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Charlie Shackleton.
