"You borrow one of the greatest forces of nature and you use it to stir the emotions and the human spirit." 

Rowan LeCompte

  

 

Narrated by Garrison Keillor, “Let There Be Light” tells the story of a great artist producing his last great work of art.

Six  years in the making, the film follows grand master Rowan LeCompte who,  at 84, is working on his last window for Washington National Cathedral.  Rowan produced his first window for this building when he was 16.

It is the story of the human struggle to create and the monumental, stunningly beautiful results that are possible when we apply ourselves to that  struggle. In its essence, this is a creation story, or rather a story of creation. In documenting the struggle to make a great work of art, the film inspires the creative spirit in all of us.
