Visible is an inspiring short film about the importance of being yourself, delivered with an intriguing sci-fi twist.
In this future Earth, most people have inexplicably become invisible, with only those who “express who they truly are, good or bad,” reappearing. It’s a pointed metaphor about how we can hide our true selves through fear of being judged, raising questions about depression and loneliness in the process.
Lost’s Henry Ian Cusick, looking like a young, stubbled Alan Rickman, gives an entrancing lead performance opposite the excellent Sonya Walger, whilst the direction from Clay Delauney is superb at capturing a melancholy yet hopeful mood.
