Summary The San Francisco--Oakland Bay Bridge opened in 1936 and was almost immediately overshadowed by the Golden Gate Bridge, which opened less than a year later. A dull workhorse next to a glamorous star, it seemed the Bay Bridge would never outshine its sister to the north. That all changed on the evening of March 5, 2013, when the Bay Bridge--thanks to 25,000 LED lights--did just that: shined. As amazing as the lights are, the story of how they got there is perhaps even more so, a story given life by Jeremy Ambers' captivating new feature-length documentary, Impossible Light. Impossible Light provides an inside glimpse at how a small team of visionaries battled numerous obstacles--from the drawing board to the boardroom to 500 feet above San Francisco Bay--to turn an impossible dream into a glimmering reality. It details all of the drama and the joy involved in creating a work of art on the grandest of scales, and demonstrates that the Bay Lights truly is a project whose "impossibility made it possible."
