Gino Merli: The Healing Hero DVD
Gino Merli: The Healing Hero is a 40-minute WVIA docudrama that recounts the World War II exploits of Congressional Medal of Honor recipient and lifelong northeastern Pennsylvania resident Gino Merli, and how his extraordinary heroism at age 20 resonated throughout the remainder of his life. Cinematically adapted for high-definition television from a one-man regional stage production, the docudrama intercuts World War II archival motion picture footage and photographs within four dramatic scenes that span the last afternoon of Merli's life. It reveals how the human experience of healing oneself can inspire the desire to heal others.
