THE RISING LIGHT, the new film from Hollinsworth Productions, is quite unlike any other science fiction film. It's a road movie. It's an odyssey across fantastical realms and worlds. It's an alien drama that blends 50's sci-fi with existential themes, the exploration of an outsider, and a study of loss and failure. It's a tale of magic and sorcery. It's written and directed by Ansel Faraj, and it stars Nathan Wilson as Daniel - a lost stranger in a strange land; Kathryn Leigh Scott as the ethereal Aya, Daniel's "mother"; Linden Chiles as tragic magician Nikolas Winter; and Derek Mobraaten as Alex, a mysterious young man who helps Daniel along in his journey.
The film was screened as part of the Official Selection of the 2014 Buffalo Niagara Film Festival. View the Trailer below.
