Light Needs 18

Director: Jesse McLean

Year: 2023

Duration: 72 mins

Certificate: 18

Screening as part of the UK Green Film Festival, this imaginative documentary delves into the lives of houseplants who cohabitate with people, and the surprisingly complex relationships that can develop between them.

Footage collected from many different domestic and professional spaces over several years reveals a world that is abundant with love, empathy, humour and lush detail.

By considering the social contracts between plant and animal, filmmaker Jesse McLean shines a light on our responsibility for care towards other living beings, and attempts to make us look at things a little differently.

Films without BBFC certification can only be screened to over 18s. This does not necessarily mean that the films contain adult content.
