Length: 90 min.
Ages: 7 - adult
Set entirely in a whimsical backstage, a host of curious pantomime characters proceed to tell a tale of a peddler who offers happiness in the form of shoes. But horrid consequences await anyone who puts on the shoes, and the peddler turns out to be far sinister than he first appears, in an age-old story of temptation, redemption, and the freedom that one Savior paid for on the cross. Despite its apparent simplicity, Rainbow Shoes is one of YC's most quietly subversive stories, as well as our most "experimental film" in tone and presentation.
This film was produced very suddenly and unexpectedly in 2020 due to the vast shutdowns and public hysteria caused by news of the COVID virus, and may reflect a certain spontaneity or clunkiness in technique and staging. This is the second full-length film produced for YC Web, following NightWorld in the same year, and was produced a year earlier than planned to keep You Connection going when live theatre was temporarily halted.
