In this episode we feature two documentaries that focus on legacies, one through music and one through letters. "Carry That Weight - A Rockumentary" is the emotional story of one teacher; his perseverance in the face of adversity and the lives of many students he changed through music by Brian Leitten. "Legacy Letters" showcases a class that teaches seniors how to reflect deeply on their past in order to chronicle their lives in creative ways by Tyler Council.
South Florida PBS is pleased to launch filmÂ·maker, a film series for emerging filmmakers from which we acquired, broadcasted, and distributed their work, in addition to providing mentorship. With the support of a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, the film maker initiative served 40 artists and reached an audience of over 2. 4 million in the South Florida region. Participants ranged in ages from 22 to 78 and represented cultures from around the globe. The 40 projects featured in film-maker include documentaries, narrative works, music videos, and more. These films will make you cry and laugh; they will entertain and inspire you.
