OUT IN THE SILENCE

HamerWilsonClip1 Out In The Silence Trailer from Dean Hamer on Vimeo.

Out in the Silence 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 his small Pennsylvania hometown.

Drawn back by a plea for help from the mother of a gay teen being tormented at school, Wilson’s journey dramatically illustrates the universal challenges of being an outsider in a conservative environment and the transformation that is possible when those who have long been constrained by a traditional code of silence summon the courage to break it.

Premiere: Human Rights Watch International Film Festival at Lincoln Center. Broadcast: PBS/America Reframed. Awards: 11 Jury and Audience Awards.
