'Quiet Heroes': USD Alumnus' Film Documentary Debuting at Sundance Film Festival

Utah resident Jared Ruga is a busy man these days. On Sunday, Jan. 21, he’ll be in Salt Lake City. On Jan. 23 and 26, the 29-year-old will be in Park City, Utah. At each stop, he’ll spend a good amount of time in a movie theater. Upon hearing that, it might not seem like a person who is on a business trip, but it's true. Actually, it's about having a strong commitment. It’s about spreading awareness, directing much-needed attention, respect and honor toward individuals who are taking care of people with unconditional dignity. In all, Ruga's three-year involvement is about to result in the world premiere of his film documentary, Quiet Heroes, at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival.
