"They Saw the Sun First" is a timely film by Stefan Hunt featuring real interviews with New York’s elderly and a dreamy score by FKJ - brought to life through dance, performance and the magic of imagination, the poignant message in this film could not be more relevant in these times.

words from the filmmaker

Turn the volume up, turn the lights down, turn your emails off, and take in all the wisdom of our elders. Enjoy.

why we love this film

This film pays reverence not only to New York but to the words of our elders. Through spectacular cinematography and inspired dance, this feels like a glimpse into the future, past, and present of the human condition.
