Impossible Light, Documentary Tells the Story Behind the Bay Lights

Impossible Light is an upcoming feature-length documentary by filmmaker Jeremy Ambers that tells the story behind the Bay Lights project, the fine art light sculpture by artist Leo Villareal on the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge (trailer).

This film captures the grueling process- from convincing hundreds of people from government agencies, private and non-profit civic and cultural organizations and the general public at large, that installing this historically massive fine arts sculpture along a 2+ mile bridge span overlooking downtown San Francisco to tackling the day-to-day issues of hanging 25,000 LED lights on the cold, windy facade of a 75 year old transportation structure.

And that’s all while they somehow manage to raise the $8.2 Million in private funding to make this project come to light.
