Light from Light, an Independent film, filmed in Knoxville, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.

Stars Jim Gaffigan and Marin Ireland

Shelia, a single mom and sometime paranormal investigator, investigates a possible “haunting” at a widower’s farmhouse in East Tennessee. As a result, after failing at investigating on her own, Shelia enlists Owen, her underachieving teenage son, and one of his classmates, a bright girl named Lucy to help. Together, Shelia, the widower, and the two teens attempt to understand the mystery.

“Acted with soulful feeling by a fine cast led by Marin Ireland and Jim Gaffigan, writer-director Paul Harrill’s second feature is constructed around a paranormal investigation but is really more interested in the internal forces haunting its four principal characters. Modest in scale but rich in sensitivity, this is an unassuming film, made all the more transfixing by its defining delicacy and understatement.” – David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

“A movie of great intimacy and mystery, Light From Light is a remarkable achievement.” – C. Mason Wells, Film Comment

Q & A with filmmaker and Director, Paul Harrill after the screening.

Synnotts climbing career has followed the arc of professional climbing from its birth in the mid 1990s to what it has become today. As a result, this puts him in a unique position to explore the subject of risk and to reflect on the old climbing proverb: there are old climbers and there are bold climbers, but there are no old bold climbers. Finally, a gifted communicator known for his wit and dry sense of humor, Synnott is widely regarded as one of the best story-tellers in the business.
The National Geographic Live Speaker Series brings premium storytelling and visually stunning imagery to the stage with first-hand accounts of science, adventure, and exploration told by our world-class explorers who inspire change in the world.
