Fly By Light Film Screening at MLK Memorial
Aug 30, 2016 09:51PM
In this film, a group of teenagers board a bus for West Virginia, leaving the streets of Washington, D.C. to participate in an ambitious peace education program. For the first time in their lives, Mark, Asha, Martha and Corey play in mountain streams, sing under the stars and confront the entrenched abuse, violence and neglect cycles of their past. But as they return to D.C., each young person faces an unforgiving series of hurdles and roadblocks that challenge their efforts to build a better life. A performance by One Common Unity's youth performance troupe will proceed the screening, and a question-and-answer time with youth featured in the film as well as the producer and co-founder of One Common Unity, Hawah Kasat and director of the film, Ellie Walton. Bring blankets or lawn chairs since there is no seating provided on the Memorial Lawn.
