Inspired by literature, myth, and the creation of lore, Borrowed Light is “a short animation about conflicting existences, natural wonders, and petty theft on a grand scale.” The award-winning film by director and animatorΒ Olivia When was shared by the International Dark-Sky Association in 2013.

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.
