In The Campfire Light


Contribute Now

In The Campfire Light is a dark, dramatic short film that illuminates the complexity of the American dream in all its glitter-addicted glory; positioning the aspiring performer in the spotlight, the film examines the susceptibility of ambition to exploitation, staging the elusive bewitching dance between power, sexuality, and its inevitable offspring: insecurity.

Set in the cesspool of dreams, New York City, the film follows a young, dejected ballet dancer, who lands in the lap of a psycho-spiritual acting coach, and his merry band of devoted students. The film chronicles her pursuit to find and free herself, as she searches futilely in the eyes of others, working to unearth a sense of purpose and ultimately, unleashing bridled passion in all its wild, collateral force.
