Event Details

From the streets of Min­neapo­lis, the abo­rig­i­nal lands of Aus­tralia, and the killing fields of Cam­bo­dia come the pow­er­ful sto­ries of three peo­ple who had the courage to step out of the haunt­ing, trag­ic dark­ness of the past, risk­ing every­thing to reach the light of their own com­pas­sion.

Risk­ing Light is a thought-pro­vok­ing doc­u­men­tary that explores resilience, and the painful process of mov­ing from grief to com­pas­sion and for­give­ness.
