Light From Light



2019 • dir Paul Harrill w/Marin Ireland, Jim Gaffigan, Josh Wiggins, Atheena Frizzell • 82 min • 35mm

Gifted with sometimes-prophetic dreams and a lifelong interest in the paranormal, single-mother Shelia (Ireland) is asked to investigate a potential haunting at a Tennessee farmhouse. It’s there she meets Richard (Gaffigan), a recent widower who believes his wife may still be with him. The investigation that ensues – which eventually pulls in Shelia’s teenage son, Owen and his classmate Lucy – forces them to confront the mysteries of their own lives. Featuring original music by Adam Granduciel and Jon Natchez of The War on Drugs, LIGHT FROM LIGHT is a finely-wrought, haunting study of four characters at cross-roads in their lives who must open up to each other to move forward. We are pleased to present this beautiful film from a 35mm print.

“One of the most dignified, humble, and perhaps even aspirational visions of American life I’ve seen in quite some time.”
– Jake Mulligan, Dig Boston

“A movie of great intimacy and mystery, LIGHT FROM LIGHT is a remarkable achievement.”
– C. Mason Wells, Film Comment

“An unconventional ghost story… made all the more transfixing by its defining delicacy and understatement.”
– David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
