  1. The correct spelling of the prestigious college that Anna attended is Wellesley, not Wellesly and the above caption is incorrect, as well. Anna is not “in her nineties”, she is 86. While we appreciated receiving this review, we stand by the decisions made in the film regarding our narrator and composer. They are both new artists working very hard for creative solutions in their respective fields. We look most forward to all of our tremendous supporters having the express opportunity to see it. Very truly yours, Cid Collins Walker, Executive Producer & Director, ARC OF LIGHT: A Portrait of Anna Campbell Bliss
