Inspired by literature, myth, and the creation of lore, director and animator Olivia Huynh tells this story, Borrowed Light, with great skill. Arae, a kid and the last patron of an abandoned observatory, is stealing lightbulbs from every socket in town. It’s an ambitious plan to eliminate light pollution and share a natural wonder that the entire city has been oblivious to.

Bonus from Huynh’s blog: juggling lightbulbs gifs.
