There was this fantastic short film made in the 1980's that has stuck with me since I saw it, it was called 'All in a summer day' it was a sci-fi that was set on planet Venus where none of the kids have ever seen a fine day, but every seven years there is 15 minutes of Sun, one girl that moved there from Earth remembers the sun, she gets bullied and locked in a closet on the day the sun appears, all the other kids go outside and run and prance about in the sun forgetting the little girl, she sadly lets the crack of light that makes its way into the closet play across her hand. When it starts to rain and they go back inside they remember her and feel guilty, one throws one of the rare flowers that blooms in the 15 minutes. On days like today with the rainy Irish weather we get, I am reminded of this film and just wait like this shot for the 15 minutes of sun.
