On the night of June 21st, just after the solstice, we gathered in the backyard to experience cinema at its best. (Sunshine)
“Remember, it takes 8 minutes for Light to travel from Sun to Earth.”
A train is coming, deep-felt roar and piercing whistle announcing its approach. Somewhere beyond, on the crisp horizon, the sun is setting. As we hop aboard the space-train, we float in the dark and featureless void and, leaving the backyard, take to the skies as a troupe of fireflies rise from the earth to be our stars. Where are we going? To the center of our orbit, to reignite our dying Star, our one source of Light… and Life. The magical screen, a bedsheet, awakens our mind to the Dream we are in - transforming itself into the Sun as we journey not to it, but in to it. ”It becomes us,” says Searle.
Intermission… beer and burgers.
A total eclipse takes us to the land of Shadow. A storm rises in the distance, just over the horizon. In darkness, and yet right on the other side: the Unseen, Visible Light. A series of self-sacrifice gives way to small spark as lightning in the clouds generate flickering light from above, as if the electricity of the spaceship is syncing with our own earth-ship.
We approach the Sun. It approaches us. We greet the Light. It greets us. A train is leaving.
“All you have to do is look out for a little extra brightness in the sky. So if you wake up one morning and it’s a particularly beautiful day, you’ll know we made it.”
Don’t miss the next transformative experience of backyard cinema. Keep your eyes and ears open, always.
