Risking Light is about 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.
Produced, written and directed by Emmy-award winner and local Broadcast Content Manager at WDSE•WRPT Dawn Mikkelson, Risking Light takes an international, multi-cultural look at how people cope with the tragedy of the past and move forward to create fulfilling lives.
Risking Light is a thought-provoking documentary that explores resilience, and the painful process of moving from grief to compassion and forgiveness. Through the unforgettable stories of Mary Johnson, who grieves a murdered son in Minneapolis; Debra Hocking, a victim of government-sanctioned genocide in Australia; and Kilong Ung, who survived the terror of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia, RISKING LIGHT challenges us to examine our own beliefs about forgiveness and ask “What would the world look like if we could learn to forgive one another?”
