A friend of mine is involved with a film, Stories of Silence, that is going to shown tonight at 10 p.m. on KCTS here in Seattle. From the release: “Stories of Silence emerged from Seattle producer Ethan Delavanâ€™s own journey through boyhood sexual abuse to survival and happiness as a husband, father, teacher and filmmaker. In the film, Delavan chronicles the stages he and many others have gone through from victim, to survivor, to voice in their lifetimes.”
Something I found interesting – the film almost wasn’t shown because there was some insurance problem around this film at the last moment. Did you know films need to be insured? I’m sure it was a huge blow to make a film about such a sensitive and personal nature and nearly be blocked by this last step. Congratulations to all involved in the film, I’m glad it’s successfully made it to air.
