College Presents Powerful Film “Darkness and Light”

  • Friday, Sep 11, 2015

Madison, Wis. (September 11, 2015) – Edgewood College invites you to a special screening of the documentary film “Darkness and Light: A Human Conversation with Eleven Wounded Veterans.”

The presentation begins at 5:30 pm, Thursday September 24, 2015, in Anderson Auditorium. There is no admission fee. A panel discussion, presented by the College’s Military and Veterans Services office, follows the film.

In this feature-length documentary, artist Thi Linh Wernau interviews eleven wounded veterans, largely post-9/11 war veterans and Marines, through the lens of her photography series, “You. Are. Beautiful,” a project which celebrates the human spirit and beauty in all people. 

The film focuses on the darkness and light that comes post-war, within the human spirit, and emerge in these candid, unscripted and conversational interviews. Ultimately, the themes that emerge from these conversations reveal one of the project’s main sources of inspiration: love.
