FMTV - Fly By Light

Fly By Light

Runtime: 60m 40s | Release date: 2013

Fly By Light is an award-winning documentary about District teenagers breaking cycles of violence. The film follows four unforgettable young people on an eight-day journey into the mountains of West Virginia, leaving the streets to participate in an ambitious peace education program.

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.

Fly By Light has received acclaim at 13 international film festivals, including Bahamas International, Capital City Film Festival, Urban Media Maker’s Film Festival, and winning the Audience Choice Award at BolderLife!

Yes, community is *so* important. It helps us see we aren't the only ones experiencing 'rough patches' in life. And when we see others can overcome their 'rough patches', we'll more than likely be able to overcome our own. :-)
