Into Sunlight

Documentary | 2016 | USA | 70 Minutes
Post-screening Q&A with Director Ron Honsa followed by Wine & Cheese Reception

This documentary brings together a choreographer, her dancers, and the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the nonfiction work that inspired her bold experiment. David Maraniss’s They Marched into Sunlight is a chronicle of the Vietnam era that explores the effects of war on those in battle and those at home. The year is 1967, the same year of student protests on the University of Wisconsin campus. The challenge for choreographer Robin Becker is to combine these events into a full-scale contemporary dance. The director blends rehearsal and performance footage with interviews with key figures from the book and the author himself. Amazingly, the dancers absorb the complex material and make a stunning contribution to the multilayered work.

“Whether military or civilian, Into Sunlight is not just worth one’s time. It’s a necessary experience in today’s society, for it reflects with rare sincerity on the echoes of Vietnam as they reverberate in American life right now. At its best, art has the potential to heal. This is art at its best.” – COL Scott Krawczyk, Head of the Department of English and Philosophy and Founding Director of the Creative Arts Project at West Point.
