PIERCING BRIGHTNESS is the debut feature film directed by acclaimed visual artist Shezad Dawood, scripted by cult novelist Kirk Lake with an original score by Makoto Kawabata of Acid Mothers Temple (Japan) and featuring music by Alexander Tucker.
Inspired by Lancashire having the highest rate of UFO sightings in the UK, as well as hosting one of the earliest splinter Mormon communities in the world, the film uses Preston and its inhabitants as a springboard to investigate religious, racial and class- based social hierarchies.
Two youths land in a spaceship outside Preston. Their mission: to re-establish contact and effect the retrieval of the ‘Glorious 100’ sent to earth millennia ago in human form to study and observe the development of another race.
