"Synopsis: A group of teenagers board a bus for West Virginia, leaving the streets of Washington, DC 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 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 is a One Common Unity youth program and a film directed by Ellie Walton and produced by HawaH." "Currently being submitted to film festivals around the world, this advanced screening is for those from the D.C. community who would like an inside peak and opportunity to not only watch the finished 90 minute documentary, but also ask questions to the featured youth and filmmakers. This evening is sponsored by Flow Yoga Center, World Renowned educator Shiva Rea, and All Souls Church Unitarian."
