The Light is a documentary set in 2023, where war is yet again raging within Europe. It explores the controversial artwork "Peace Sculpture" created in 1995 by artist Elle-Mie Ejdrup. The piece, a 532 km laser beam along the west coast bunkers, ignited a national debate in Denmark about the country's dark past and liberation from Nazi occupation. Elle-Mie faced threats and ostracism due to sexist media coverage. After 28 years, the documentary reveals new perspectives. It not only focuses on the artwork and controversy but also highlights the overlooked Atlantic Wall built during WWII and emphasizes the importance of nuanced historical narratives. "The Light" champions marginalized voices and emphasizes the impact of war on societies.
