Risking Light + Q&A

Dawn Mikkelson / USA / 2017 / 87 mins / English / Documentary

ā€œIn a world that proudly wears its hatred amd division on its sleeve Risking Light illuminates another side.ā€

From the streets of Minneapolis, the Stolen Generations of Tasmania, and the killing fields of Cambodia come the powerful stories of three people who had the courage to step out of the darkness of the past and risk everything to reach the light of their own compassion. Risking Light adopts an international, multicultural perspective to examine how people cope with the tragedy of the past and move forward to create fulfilling lives. Emmy-award winning director Dawn Mikkelson explores the painful process of moving from grief to forgiveness, daring to ask: what would the world look like if we could learn to forgive each other?

Join us for a film Q&A with film subject Debra Hocking
