Short Film: There's Only One Sun

Written and Directed by Wong Kar-Wai

Gorgeously garish lighting accentuates this sci-fi piece by renowned auteur Wong Kar Wai. Agent 006 is undercover to catch the mysterious, charismatic “Light”, but wrestles with her own feelings in doing so.

Wai, the premier arthouse writer/director of Hong Kong, decided in 2007 to team up with Phillips to do an online film promoting the electronic giant’s Aurea Ambilight Televisions. The result manages to admirably traverse that tricky ground between art and commerce, being a worthy addition to the director’s oeuvre while simultaneously an effective commercial. We as audiences are simply treated to an online film of an impressive artistic and technical caliber.
