In Pre-Production

Two filmmakers at opposite ends of their careers, separated by oceans, find themselves cosmically connected through a name and a film. What starts as a playful personal documentary about the origins and identity of a name, spirals into an existential interrogation of the power manifested through image creation across continents that transmutes into the initiation journey of a young filmmaker in search of their own voice.  

FIGHTING FOR THE LIGHT is a hybrid biographical and autobiographical documentary, a cinematic baptism ceremony, and an homage to cultural preservation through ancestral storytelling practices. 

Partners: BPM, Field of Vision, BAVC Mediamakers

Expected Release: 2023
