No Ordinary Sun

Short Film (Full Length) – 2004

PG
Parental Guidance

Set in Antarctica (and partly shot there), the science fiction tale sees a researcher (Crawford Thomson) dealing with unsettling events — traumatic personal news, isolation, disquieting “anomalous electrical readings”, and warping time. As newsreader John Campbell says in an intercepted transmission: “the speed of light is changing. Well, what does that mean?”. The title is from Hone Tuwhare’s anti-nuclear themed poem of the same name, but the film was inspired by Pat Rushin short story Speed of Light. It was an official selection at Edinburgh Film Festival.

Kia ora, good evening. We join you tonight at an extraordinary time in world history — the speed of light is changing. Well, what does that mean? Well we cross now live to Wellington ...
