Quest (1983)

Quest is a visual spectacle written for the screen by Ray Bradbury and directed by Elaine & Saul Bass (yes, that Saul Bass - famous for creating the credit titles for such feature films as Man with the Golden Arm and Walk on the Wild Side) and released in 1983. It's a story of a race of people trapped on a strange planet where lack of sunlight and vegetation has reduced the life span to eight short days. From the children born to this doomed race, one child is selected to dispel the darkness. Following in the footsteps of others who have tried before, he must find and open a vast gate, letting in the "Light" which will bring peace and long life to his people.
