They Saw the Sun First is a timely film by Stefan Hunt featuring real interviews with New York’s elderly and a dreamy score by FKJ – brought to life through dance, performance and the magic of imagination, the poignant message in this film could not be more relevant in these times.

Turn the volume up, turn the lights down, turn your emails off, and take in all the wisdom of our elders. Enjoy.
