Dean Hamer and Joe Wilson’s “Out in Silence” will be presented as a live virtual screening today on SnagFilms. The film follows the story of a small American town confronting a firestorm of controversy ignited by a same-sex wedding announcement in the local newspaper. During the free, online premiere of the Emmy-nominated film, viewers will be able to join a live discussion with the film’s directors and pose questions on both the film and current events.
“We’re trying to show this at any place where we can promote dialogue and mutual understanding,” commented director Joe Wilson in a statemeny. “I think we were able to demonstrate some of the problems gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender [GLBT] people face in their communities and have had a lot of people come together to discuss them and what kinds of solutions there are.”
The film can be viewed here.
