SLIDING INTO THE LIGHT with Crystal Thornburg-Homcy
“Sliding into the Light,” a new short film featuring Crystal Thornburg-Homcy, is a meditation on loss, renewal, and our connection to the sea.
From childhood to motherhood, the film explores the challenges of femininity and the strength and support that the ocean provides. While the surf film genre is traditionally a portrait of unattainable perfection, “Sliding into the Light” encourages us to find beauty in everyday challenges.
