The film intersperses the architect’s philosophies with quotes narrated by Brad Pitt.

Light Snatcher investigates the intricate play of natural light in the work of Juha Leiviskä, one of Finland’s most successful contemporary architects. This lyrical film reveals how light plays with buildings and space, like reverberation in music -- and how light waves can act like sound waves, creating new dimensions of design.
