Main Event

Shouting Secrets is a hopeful and heartwarming, universal story taking place in a Native American family. But it is everybody's story, not just Native American or Caucasian, not just Jewish or Christian, not just poor or rich. It's a story that is at once about the constancy and the fragility of love, as well as the importance of family:
Wesley, a young, successful novelist, long ago left Arizona and the San Carlos Apache Reservation in his rear view mirror. He remains close to his mother but alienated the rest of the family with his autobiographical bestseller. He has no intention of returning for his parents anniversary party but finds himself pulled back into the fold. Coming home only underlines what a mess Wesley’s life has become, but he’s not alone in that. Shouting Secrets tells a present day story about a Native-American family with unique struggles but universal truths.
Director: Korinna Sehringer
Running time: 88 minutes
