Margaret Singer: Seeking Light short documentary movie: Born and raised in Frankfurt, Germany, at the age of 17, tragedy and turbulence flung Margaret Singer far from her roots. With courage and purpose she bent darkness into light utilizing her gifts as an artist and a poet and her innate sense of truth and joy. Following her own compass, Margaret broke every mold of expectation for a woman, an immigrant and a refugee. She has created a body of work that will inspire generations. The art, wisdom and journey of 97 year old Margaret Singer is celebrated in the film Margaret Singer: Seeking Light.
