Tropfest last night in Sydney – sixteen short films premiered before super star judges. The motif was ‘Lightbulb’. Many thousands sat on the grass. The sun clocked off and the lights of the city began their night shift.
Dark clouds swept over us. The inevitable downpour began and we were treated to a spectacular electrical storm.
A flash of lightning illuminates and leaves us wanting more. Children play with light switches. On, off, on, off. It’s the contrast. Our senses have no time to let us get used to the light or the dark.
Swift changes thrill. Short things delight.
