Lightships

A Film Inspired by the League of Light

Lightships is an evocative new work by visionary filmmaker John Harrigan, based on the book Remembrance: Pleiadian Messages in Preparation for Contact, which brings to life a story of awakening to a greater reality… and unlocking inner truth.

The Story

It’s been a year since Eve died, and while her body was revived, her spirit is damaged. She feels like she’s lost herself and struggles to present a normal façade. Her life before death seems like another’s memory. Her husband, son, her acclaimed writing career… all vague somehow.

Eve’s family gives her a beautiful journal, hoping it will help her creativity spark. She intended to record her recovery. As soon as she starts to write, however, the alien world at the edge of her dreams begins to pulse through and compels her to write the transmissions down.

Soon, these visions consume her. Her life disintegrates. Is Eve losing her mind or wallowing in Truth, evolving to post-human?

Today was a wrap on filming on the set of Lightships.

Earlier this year, late spring I think, I started hearing from the Pleiadians that my work was going to change in a dramatic way in the not-too-distant future.
