Event Details

 

JOIN US FOR A SPECIAL SCREENING OF THE DOCUMENTARY BROKEN HEART LAND.

Broken Heart Land is a feature-length documentary that explores the response of friends, family and community members to Zack Harrington’s suicide in Norman, Oklahoma in 2010. Zack was a well-liked, openly gay teenager that carried a secret he was unable to disclose to his family or community prior to his death, he was HIV positive. Against the backdrop of a town bitterly divided on the issue of homosexuality, Zack’s grief­stricken parents, both conservative Republicans and military veterans, are forced to reconcile their own social and political beliefs with their son’s death. The film highlights the need for community acceptance and support and gives special emphasis to how critical open dialogue in communities and families can be to one’s survival.
