...only I had failed to foresee one thing: 

the eyes that finally opened to see us

didn't belong to us, but to others.

Italo Calvino, Cosmicomics (The Spiral, III)

Set long after the end of the Anthropocene in the idyllic landscapes of what was once known as the Italian peninsula, E così entra la luce (And That's How The Light Gets In) follows four childlike creatures during their oneiric quest for names. An experiment in hallucinatory multispecies ethnography co-written with the entire cast and crew, the film was shot using the insect-centric perspective of a specially-designed camera.

AWAITING RELEASE!
