The Dying of the Light is a documentary exploring the history and craft of motion picture presentation through the lives and stories of the last generation of career projectionists. By turns humorous and melancholic, their candid reflections on life in the booth and the turn towards new technologies reveal a world that has largely gone unnoticed and is now at an end, and speak to larger questions about how to find the positives in devoting one's life to work that is now obsolete. Directed with equal parts art and humor by Peter Flynn, the result is a loving tribute to the art and romance of the movies - and a well-deserved portrait of the unseen people who brought the light to our screens.
