Fly By Light has received acclaim at 12 international film festivals, including Bahamas International, Capital City Film Festival, Urban Media Maker’s Film Festival, and winning the Audience Choice Award at BolderLife!
Under the mentorship of artist educators and conflict resolution specialists, Mark, Corey, Martha and Asha begin to process and move on from the shootings, abuse and neglect of their past. But as they return to DC, each young person faces an unforgiving series of hurdles and roadblocks that challenge their efforts to build a better life. Through breathtaking visuals from street corners to mountaintops, “Fly By Light” is an intimate exploration of the chaotic, confusing and emotional journey to rewrite a young person’s future.
Emmy Award winning producer – Roberta Oster Sachs – had this to say about the film and program: “Your work with DC youth is explosive and so important. You have found a way to touch broken hearts – hearts that have been twisted, tortured and tormented. I felt some of the kids in the film had their light extinguished by pain and fear… and through your classes and workshops you were able to ignite their spark… almost like bringing them back to life. It was a joy to witness this process through the film.”
