Join us this summer to explore how blindness has been depicted in Hollywood in our first American Printing House Museum Film Fest. Each month we will screen a film featuring a major character who is blind, followed by a discussion. All movies are presented with audio description for the blind.
The film fest is part of Bards and Storytellers, our popular arts, folklore and performance summer series. Admission is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Call 502-899-2213 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to register. Best for older children and adults.
