America ReFramed

Hosted by journalist and filmmaker Natasha del Toro, America ReFramed showcases films that will give viewers a “snapshot” of the transforming American life — the guts, the glory, the grit of a new and changing America. From contemporary life on Native American reservations to stories of recovery on the Gulf, from hardships and revitalization in towns big and small, to stories from city streets across the country, these independent, personal and opinionated films document the times in which we live.

America ReFramed: "Out in the Silence"

Tuesday, Mar. 3 at 8pm on WGBH World

When Joe Wilson announces he is to wed a man, a firestorm of controversy ignites in his hometown. Drawn by a plea for help from the mother of a gay teen being bullied at school, Wilson’s journey illustrates the possible transformation of those who have been constrained by a traditional code of silence to summon the courage to break it.
