Around the Sun

“Sort of a British, female-driven Before Sunrise crossed with an episode of Cosmos?” is how Bay Area based screenwriter Jonathan Kiefer once tried describing Around the Sun. As good as anything else, at least, which is to say that this sumptuous indie is really not like much of anything else but itself. A pleasure for lovers of talk, life and love.

On a rain-soaked night in India, the aimless lives of several young people crystallize into a sympathetic portrait of addiction.

The result is visual poetry.
