the luminary

Australia, 2005 (MIFF 2006, Animation Shorts)

Director: Nicholas Kallincos

the luminary

What happens when your inner glow is gone? How is it rekindled and at what price? The Luminary tells the story of a grieving insect collector. In his search for understanding and love he is pitted against the cyclic nature of things both inside and outside his reclusive world.
