The international version of this film ("The Silent Army") was the original Dutch entry for the Academy Awards' Best Foreign Film. However, the film was turned down because it was a re-cut version. This led to the submission of Winter in Wartime (2008). See more »

A shorter (92 minutes) version that left out all the music and focused less on Marco Borsato was cut under the supervision of French critic, director and editor Pierre Rissient. This version was retitled 'The Silent Army'. See more »
An evening to the movies turns out to be one of the greatest accomplishes in Dutch cinema.
Wit licht starring Marco Borsato is a great movie! From the first second you sit in your seat you are caught into the story line in which Marco Borsato goes on his journey to find a boy who has been taken by rebels. Although Marco Borsato is a singer from origin he delivers great screenplay and at the end of the movie he had the whole theater in tears.
Wit licht brings attention to the problems in Africa while bringing great entertainment to the movie theaters. 10/10!
