Ten Thousand Points of Light

Montana Premiere

Shot on VHS tape, this obscure 1990 film takes a look at what ensues when the tradition of Christmas lights, Elvis fandom, and Southern hospitality are all taken to the absolute extreme.  British filmmaker George King explores the christmas tradition of the Townsend’s, a family who for over 20 years decorated their suburban Atlanta home with excessive amounts of Christmas lights and Elvis memorabilia and then opened it to the public.  Part Errol Morris, part William Eggleston, the film plays as a sweet relic.
