A short period drama set against the space-race canvas of the 1960s, Anomaly explores love, creation and the cosmos. An inspired re-interpretation of the historical Christmas Nativity story, the film is brilliantly imagined — a story of broken relationships, principally that of a young couple navigating life’s realities at a time when an unprecedented astronomical event of mystical significance takes center stage.  Directed by Salomon Ligthelm and Dan DiFelice, and filmed on location in New York City, coastal Maine, Kansas, and Colorado, the film stars Christian Cooke, Lexi Johnson, Andrew Sensenig, and Anthony Lopez.

Reviews, Interviews and More

“Earlier this week, the highly anticipated short film “ANOMALY” (directed by Salomon Lighthelm & Dan DiFelice) was released online for free, and it pretty much took over the internet. Within minutes of it’s release, the film started racking up thousands upon thousands of views on Vimeo before eventually getting staff picked and shared on countless sites and blogs – all the while receiving extremely high praise from viewers and filmmakers alike.” – Noam Kroll
