THE SARASOTA EXPERIENCE follows an unfiltered look at the past, present and future of Sarasota while exploring “what creates a thriving community.”
The television presentation of THE SARASOTA EXPERIENCE airs on WEDU PBS Thursday April 20th, 9pm, with a film premiere at the Sarasota Opera House Thursday April 13th at 6:30pm.
We've spoken to historians, anthropologists, and longtime residents about an unfiltered look at our past. We've spoken to community leaders concerning our present and future including the African American, LatinX, and LGBTQ+ communities, along with other professionals about such varied issues as education, homelessness, the rise of anti-Semitism and hate, tourism, business, government, affordable housing, water quality, community, inclusion, civility, architecture, and of course, the arts.
Our opening shot is huge, a nighttime hollywood styled cinematic 300' "one-shot" sequence, filmed in Burns Court, highlighting many of the largest performing arts organizations in Sarasota, similar in style and scope to this "LALA LAND" shot. In addition, the shot is completely scored by The Sarasota Orchestra, who performs DVORAK Symphony 9!
Our incredible sponsors for the documentary include: The Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation, The Gulf Coast Community Foundation, Visit Sarasota, One Stop Housing, Kilwins Sarasota, Global Public Speaking and Sharon Carole.
Thank you for your continued support of Triforce Pictures, and I hope you'll join us at this wonderful premiere!
