Join WEDU for a screening and panel discussion about the new documentary that explores the diverse past, present and future of Sarasota.
WEDU PBS and TriForce Pictures have partnered to produce The Sarasota Experience, a documentary exploring the area’s diverse and transformative history through the present day while focusing on what makes a community thrive.
Join us on April 13th for a special premiere of The Sarasota Experience. The Sarasota Experience will feature events and individuals from Sarasota’s history, as well as some lesser-known and often underappreciated stories from the past. Those stories include the impact of the Civil Rights Movement on Sarasota and the area’s leading role in preserving and protecting the environment. With help from local experts, the film will review Sarasota’s first settlers, the creation of the city of Sarasota, the county of Sarasota, the roaring twenties, the hardship of the thirties, the World War II era, all the way through the 1950s and beyond.
Valet Parking will be provided at the Sarasota Opera. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., and the screening will begin at 7 p.m., followed by a panel discussion.
Funding for The Sarasota Experience provided from the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation with additional support from Visit Sarasota, Kilwin’s Siesta Key, Gould Family Trust Foundation at Gulf Coast Community Foundation, One Stop Housing, Global Public Speaking, and Gail and Skip Sack.
