Fading Light

Nights & Weekend's 'Fading Light' video is a love story set inside a dystopian reality, where a mysterious symbol in the sky reveals itself to our planet. Some people decide to live their lives without paying any attention to this extraterrestrial symbol, while others are controlled by its energy. "At the end of the world, society will seek only human connection."

words from the filmmaker

I made this film to make something with the Los Angeles dance community, whom I love and am constantly inspired by. Also, shooting at Erik Lloyd Wright's house in Malibu, set next to Nights & Weekends' ethereal music, with DP Norm Li and Choreographer Jasmine Alabquarue was a dream. So many incredible actors (including Troian Bellisario, Raymond Ejiofor) performers, and friends came to support the project, and I feel honored to captain the ship. The film is necessary because it's about human connection and moving through life with vulnerability and kindness.

why we love this film

This film pushes the boundaries of what a dance film can be. A beautifully told story, raw movement, and a captivating performance. If this doesn't make you feel something, nothing will!
