I Saw The Light

I Saw the Light is a documentary film about a trip to Creation, one of the largest Christian music festivals in the country. The film follows a youth group on their adventure from the outskirts of Baltimore to the middle of Pennsylvania—or as folks in the area like to call it, God's Country. The 35-minute piece is produced by VICE's Chloe Campion and hosted by Noisey's editor-in-chief, Eric Sundermann. 

Through conversations with Grammy winning pop duo for KING & COUNTRY and rapper Andy Mineo—along with speakers from the 50,000+ attended festival—the documentary takes a thoughtful look at the world of Christian music, belief, growing up, and Jesus Christ. To quote a character in the film, we're "not going to call this the Christian Woodstock, but… it's the Christian Woodstock."

This documentary is dedicated to John Jeremiah Sullivan, whose essay "Upon This Rock" for GQ inspired the film.
