HBO’s ‘Song of Parkland’ Moves Past Tragedy with Inspirational Love

Out of a horrible moment in American history has come a bright light with HBO’s “Song of Parkland.”

Currently airing, is the telling short documentary that tells the story of a group of drama students and their teacher moving past the dark school shooting that took place on their grounds.

When Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School drama teacher Melody Herzfeld heard the fire alarm on Feb. 14, 2018, she was in rehearsals with her students for their annual children’s musical. Herzfeld rushed her 65 students into a storage closet while a now infamous fellow student shooter killed 17 teachers and students nearby.
Filmed in the months following the shootings, when the Florida school community is grappling with the tragedy, comes the story of endurance and motivation to move on with the powerful healing of art.


The film starts with tear-pushing moments looking back at the horrific day. The students and Herzfeld defy the odds and bring to their stage a new show. Coming together in a process that would ultimately lead to a moving performance at the Tony Awards, the kids find a new sense of passion and purpose, forging a path to healing for themselves and their community.

Directed and produced by Emmy®-winner Amy Schatz, this affecting short film includes original songs written by the students about their experience, as well as interviews and scenes from walk-outs and rallies across the country as other young people, galvanized by the Parkland activists, take to the streets to call for the creation of a safer world.
“Song of Parkland” is directed and produced by Amy Schatz; director of photography, Alex Rappoport; edited by Tom Patterson; consulting producer, Diane Kolyer. For HBO: supervising producer, Sara Rodriguez; executive producers, Nancy Abraham and Lisa Heller.
