Buster Grey-Jung notes:

Inspired by a talk given by Lauryn Hill at the 2000 Achievement Summit in Scotsdale, Arizona, 'Natural Light' is an experimental short film which fuses original footage and sound design by artist Buster Grey-Jung with an extract of this pre-existing speech* given by one of hip-hop's most renowned musicians.

The visual content was captured at the 4th instalment of 'Jamuary', a yearly breakdance event organised by #UNiTY and The LMNade Associates Crew, in Stour Space, London.

A special thanks to all dancers involved.
