Explore how blindness is depicted by Hollywood at our APH Museum Film Festival. The summer event screens films featuring an important character who is blind, followed by discussion. Best for older children and adults. All three films include audio description.
Butterflies Are Free (1972) was based on the play written by Leonard Gershe. A blind man (Edward Albert) moves into his own apartment against the wishes of his overprotective mother (Eileen Heckart) and befriends the aspiring actress who lives next door (Goldie Hawn). Nominated for several Oscars, the movie scored one win for Eileen Heckart as best supporting actress.
