education affecting youth in our very own backyard of Washington DC? Are you
passionate about creating social change through peace, development,
education, and empowerment? Do you love learning/broadening your world view
and/or LOVE seeing new documentaries!?
Join UMD Alternative Breaks for a special FREE screening of the award winning
documentary, Fly By Light! The event will be hosted in the Hoff Theatre in
STAMP and light refreshments will be served :) Below is the film 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.
