Director Statement

At times, we all feel like we don't fit in - whether we look different, talk different, or think different - we are in a constant battle of being unique but wanting to feel like we belong.

Where everything is individualized sometimes we forget or are too fearful to reach past our differences and make personal connections.

Nightlight is about how kindness is contagious. One person at a time, kindness and love can spread and change hearts. Looks, language, and even species doesn't change our capacity to love one another.
