From a mother’s meeting with her child’s killer to a genocide survivor’s decision to reject vengeance, Risking Light is a feature documentary film which explores the complexities and unique emotional journeys of four remarkable people who have forgiven the unforgivable from the United States, Cambodia, and Australia.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker, Dawn Mikkelson, Risking Light was launched in 2010 as part of Mikkelson’s McKnight Artist Fellowship. The film is in final post-production after a successful $60K crowdfunding campaign, in which it also became a finalist in the #UntoldStory Crowdfunding Rally, presented by Seed&Spark and Project Greenlight Studios.
