A meditative delight

This film is a perfect, searching and soulful little piece of film making. All four people brought to life here are living in hope for something outside of themselves and beyond the mundane but necessary realities of work, study and getting by. They seek life. They seek light. They seek love. And death is the undercurrent and background and vehicle through which this search takes on a more urgent and pressing need for meaning. And of course, there are various histories, some spoken and others not, relating to grief and loss and a need for forgiveness and closure. The father who 'drank himself to death'. The deceased wife who 'had something going on with another man'. The single mother who despite doing her best, cannot protect her son from the risks life and love inevitably bring, without hurting him herself.

The title of the film, Light from Light. is borrowed from the Nicene Creed and the context in which it is used here, is, to quote a modern shibboleth, spiritual. not religious.

It's beautifully filmed with a mellow soundtrack and lends itself to reflection over entertainment, much to the chagrin of at least one other reviewer here so far, I see (with much amusement).

Enjoy!

Artfully Pondering the Mystery of Life

Imagine a meditative film about "ghost hunting", coming from a place of introspection and honesty- this is "Light from Light". There's nary a false note or sensationalized anything here. Really gentle and moving and filled with human performances- Marin Ireland and Jim Gaffigan are fantastic as lived-in characters given dialogue that feels real, like conversations you might have in their situation. Both naturalistic and transcendental is hard to pull off; it's easy to be over-the-top. Much harder to convey something that's both magical and earthy, or the creation of a film that feels like the closest approximation to life possible. That's what "Light from Light" is, and it's rare and lovely.

So, if you're a fan of thoughtful, soulful indie films, then you've come to the right place. Reminiscent of the film "Columbus" by Kogonanda. If you know of that film or have seen it, then this feels like a kindred spirit. Highly recommended.

Reverie

This film held my interest throughout because of the gentle characterizations of interesting and troubled people confronted by a mystery that may or may not be supernatural. The four actors convey subtle emotions in a very realistic way that moved me. The string guitar soundscape added to a sense of both reverie and reverance for the characters and viewer alike. I'm glad I had a chance to see this film.
