TOMORROW- Screening of FLY BY LIGHT, the Movie

One Common Unity, Inc. a Washington, DC-based nonprofit presents a screening of its new documentary “Fly By Light”, directed by award-winning filmmaker Ellie Walton. 

Thursday, May 3, 2012 @ 8pm
Fly By Light Movie Screening, co-presented by Meridian Hill Pictures
Josephine Butler Center
2437 15th St NW 
 Washington, DC 20009

In the summer of 2011, 15 high school students from diverse neighborhoods across Washington, DC were uprooted from the hustle of inner-city life to beautiful mountain vistas and springs. For many of the teenagers, this was their first time leaving the concrete confines of the city. It was also their first time experiencing a hike through the mountains, a swim in the creek, the feel of a sincere cry, the sound of their song through a microphone, the touch of a painful bee sting, the rush of fire spinning, and the smell of sage burning during a Native-American sweat lodge ceremony. It was a transformational week of boundary-stretching and social-emotional learning, reflecting the love, struggle, compassion, pain, laughter, and friendship of their daily lives.

Directed by filmmaker Ellie Walton, the new documentary film follows the experience of a select group of youth who participated in this program facilitated by the nonprofit One Common Unity. Both screenings will feature a works-in-progress screening of the rough cut of the film, followed by a discussion facilitated by Rajeev “HawaH” Kasat from One Common Unity.

Screenings of “Fly By Light” kick off the beginning of the One Common Unity fundraising campaign “IGNITE THE FLIGHT”. To learn more about One Common Unity, visit Email for questions.
