Rayon de Soleil
Rays of the Sun
Master graduation shortfilm, Luca Sint-Lukas Brussels, 2017.
In the 12th century in the French wilderness, a woman awaits with her child for her husband to return from the crusades. They are struggling for survival. While exploring in detail the way people back then lived in relation to nature, this historical drama favours the use of allegory to address contemporary concerns such as religious fanaticism, post traumatic stress disorder and alienation.
