WHEN LIGHT FADES
Daan Groot / Netherlands / 2020 / 11:03
“Mental health is the universal elephant in the room. I am glad that someone made this film and wish that more people would be able to watch it. When Light Fades is such an intense and brutally emotional short film that makes me feel guilty to find it beautiful at the same time.”
Fransiska Prihadi (Program Director MFW6)
Minikino Film Week strives to build a strong cinema culture and critical audience. The selection committee and programmers try to balance both with this year’s selection, hoping to give the best experience for each audience while at the same time also highlight the exceptional short films this year. Each nominees’ theme in this category are different, yet we felt a strong sense of urgency to be able to talk about these topic. All three nominees have a genuine vulnerable approach in showing the challenging stories.
