HEARD poster image VPM presents a Belltower Pictures production

Premieres Thursday, November 12, 2020, 9:00 pm on VPM in Central Virginia.

Watch HEARD on PBS stations nationwide. Check your local listings.

News coverage offers steady, lurid stories of violence, gangs and drugs in public housing. But to many Americans, public housing and urban poverty are “issues” that remain out of sight and out of mind.

In HEARD, these issues take on human faces. We’ll get to know current and former residents of the projects and hear them tell their own compelling stories. We’ll see how they’re surviving and thriving in spite of… and often because of the challenges they've had to overcome.

Belltower Pictures developed and produced the film with major funding provided by VPM, Virginia’s home for Public Media.
