Wicked Silence

Come join the Graduate School community as we host a private screening of the film “Wicked Silence”.

Wicked Silence is a film documentary about the NC forced eugenics program created by graduate students Jessica Pic and Sana Haq in the Documentary Film Program here at Wake Forest University. The film explores the North Carolina eugenics program through the eyes of those who experienced it. We hear their painful stories, but we also see their strength and resilience in the face of incredible loss. A story of suffering, it is also a story of healing, and most importantly, a story of hope. A film premier of Wicked Silence will be shown on November 2nd at the WF Biotech Place auditorium from 3:00 – 5:00 pm.

There will be a panel discussion with Dr. Mary M. Dalton – Moderator (Co-director of the Documentary Film Program), Dr. Adam Kadlac (Department of Philosophy), Dr. Nancy King (Co-Director, Center for Bioethics, Health & Society), and John Railey (Editorials Editor at the Winston-Salem Journal) following the film viewing along with a filmmaker Q&A session.
