A new generation of performers is discovered in “Giving Voice,” about the annual August Wilson Monologue Competition which highlights the work of the often under appreciated playwright. The national event brings Wilson’s work (“Fences,” “The Piano Lesson” etc.) to students, encouraging them to explore themselves and the world around them. Through the film, we discover the influence words can have and the voices that can be ignited to inspire change.
Sarasota Film Festival is devoted to supporting the art and elevating the craft of cinema.
