Written and Directed by Luke Downing
Your Star follows the story of Mathew Bailey, a thoughtful 8 year old boy as he is taught about the night sky by his grandfather. Mathew hangs on his grandfathers every word and is amazed by the constellations and galaxies above them. When his grandfather tells him his theory that each star represents every person that has ever lived, Mathew looks to the sky and finds two neighbouring stars and announces that one is for him, the other for his grandfather. With this, the old man smiles and suggests that “...at least we’ll always be close by...” Your Star is a story of human relationship and emotion, using the motif of the night sky as a symbol of hope.
