As darkness encroaches on our days, we pause to celebrate luminosity in all its varied forms. As cinema’s point of origin, light, with its attendant shadows and reflections, is central to the aesthetic development of cinema.
From dancing kaleidoscopes and visual tricks to beautiful studies of cities in motion, these films offer fun and fascinating looks at light.
