The timely short documentary series Let Science Speak premiered on September 20th during the Tribeca TV Festival. The documentary has been immediately made available on YouTube and at www.letsciencespeak.com. Let Science Speak leverages intimate storytelling to go beyond the “War on Science” headlines and humanize scientists, showing how their work is connected to the personal values that most Americans can relate to, including innovation, faith, family and civic duty. This six-part series of short films is a direct response to escalating efforts to suppress environmental science and silence scientists. The premiere coincides with the first anniversary of Hurricane Maria’s devastating landfall on Puerto Rico.
The series was funded in part by The Elizabeth R. & William J. Patterson Foundation, S. D. Bechtel, Jr. Foundation, Margaret and Will Hearst, Troy and Leslie Daniels, The Outrider Foundation, The Caldera Foundation, Buckhill Capital and others.
