"The Silent Soldier and the Portrait” Wins Award in IndieFEST Film Awards

(Boston, MA 2.10.19) – “The Silent Soldier and the Portrait” produced by Incandescent Media has won a prestigious Award of Merit from the IndieFEST Film Awards. The award was given for Garland Waller’s exciting documentary, “The Silent Soldier and the Portrait”. Co-Directed and co-written with her husband, Barry Nolan, the documentary tells the story of John Waller, one of the last living survivors of the sinking of the troopship Leopoldville on Christmas Eve in 1944. After the sinking, and the loss of 800 men, Waller followed military orders and kept the tragedy a secret. But there was another secret, this one involving blowing up a safe in France during the war. On a mission to do the right thing, the documentary retraces the journey of a young solider, to make amends.

“This was a project of the heart,” says Waller. “In the end, it is a moving portrait of repair, repatriation & second chances. That is what people respond to the most.”

The IndieFEST Film Awards recognizes film, television, videography and new media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change.
