Event Description

We are delighted to welcome director Shezad Dawood for a Q&A discussion following this screening.

Preston has the highest incidence of UFO sightings and also the fastest-growing Chinese population in Britain, and it’s here that renowned mixed-media artist Shezad Dawood has set his film PIERCING BRIGHTNESS.

Two youngsters, Jiang (Chen Ko) and Shin (Jennifer Lim, HOSTEL), land a spacecraft outside the Lancashire town on a mission to bring home their forebears, the ‘Glorious 100’, who were sent to study our planet many millennia ago.

But they soon discover that many of the 100 have become corrupted by their unwitting hosts, losing sight of their original purpose and in turn influencing the local population to sometimes surprising ends.

As the pair are pursued by a sinister bike gang their task is made even more difficult, until Dawood’s offbeat sci-fi drama reaches its climax atop Preston’s brutalist bus station.
