The Kid Should See This

Borrowed Light: An ambitious plan to see the light by stealing it

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.
