TN Deaf-Blind Movie Premiere "Feeling Through" - Free Movie Premiere

City: Franklin
County: Williamsom
Location: Franklin Theatre, 419 Main Street
Time(s): 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM CT
Calendar: Other Agency Events/Webinars

The TN Deaf-Blind Project is co-hosting, Feeling Through, a moving starring the first ever Deaf-Blind Actor.  We would like to invite you to this free event which will be held on June 27th, 2019 from 12pm to 4pm at the Franklin Theatre located in downtown Franklin, TN.

The Helen Keller National Center (HKNC) is a proud fiscal sponsor and collaborator on Feeling Through, a coming of age story about the life-changing encounter between a teen without a home and a Deaf-Blind man. The film is historic, with a Deaf-Blind actor cast as a lead. But Feeling Through is not at its core about Deaf-Blindness; it is about fundamental human connection. Complementing Feeling Through, and capturing the process of making this historic film – from the casting room to the cutting room floor – and the journey of our first-time actor, we've made a second film, a documentary. Also appearing in the documentary: the Deaf-Blind man who inspired the story. Both films will be screened together and accompanied by a panel discussion with members of the Deaf-Blind community.

We view this as a unique opportunity to promote an authentic portrayal of a Deaf-Blind character in a film while challenging common stereotypes and misconceptions.

Please feel free to pass along this invitation.
