WEDU PBS Premieres Original Documentary Featuring Ruth Eckerd Hall's Project: Shattered Silence


WEDU's original documentary, Project: Shattered Silence, will premiere Thursday, January 30 at 9:00 p.m. on WEDU.

Tampa, FL (I-Newswire) January 27, 2014 - WEDU PBS, in partnership with Ruth Eckerd Hall, presents a candid, in-depth look at the remarkable real life stories of 46 teenagers in the Tampa Bay Area.

WEDU's newest original documentary Project: Shattered Silence captured the catharsis of a group of courageous teenagers who were willing to bare their souls, and share their intriguing stories of struggle and survival, rejection and acceptance, and ultimately, unwavering hope.

Inspired and guided every step of the way by artistic director and creator of the project, Jared O'Roark, the 46 teens' 10-month journey culminated with the riveting production "Project: Shattered Silence - In the Blue Hour" at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida.
Already winning acclaim, Project: Shattered Silence will premiere Thursday, January 30 at 9:00 p.m. on WEDU.

Project: Shattered Silence Producer Colleen Hamilton, Photographer Brad Clore, and Editor Mark Harris were honored by Suncoast Regional Emmy® Awards for a WEDU Arts Plus segment featuring Project: Shattered Silence, which already aired on WEDU in May 2013. The Emmy® Award winning segment and more about the original documentary can be found online at: www.wedu.org/projectshatteredsilence.
