Sundance Work in Progress: Out in the Silence

Out In The Silence is a documentary film that captures the remarkable chain of events that unfold when the announcement of filmmaker Joe Wilson’s wedding to another man ignites a firestorm of controversy in the small Pennsylvania hometown he left long ago. Out In The Silence is a Sundance Works in Progress screening, which provides an opportunity for filmmakers and viewers to explore the creative process and examine the issues addressed in the film. Out In The Silence has received creative and financial support from the Sundance Institute Documentary Film Program, a core program of Sundance Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to the discovery and development of independent artists. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Joe Wilson and Dean Hamer.  (2009, 56 min., Dirs. Dean Hamer and Joe Wilson)
