A spate of robberies in Southern California schools had an oddly specific target: tubas! In this work of creative nonfiction, d/Deaf director and Wells College Filmmaker-in-Residence Alison O’Daniel presents the impact of these crimes from an unexpected angle. The film mimicks a game of telephone, where the story bends and weaves to human interpretation and miscommunication. The result is a stunning contribution to cinematic language. O’Daniel has developed a syntax of deafness that offers a complex, overlaid, surprising new texture, which offers a dimensional experience of sound and reorients the audience to cinema in an unfamiliar and exhilarating way.
Meet the director! Q & A and reception to follow the screening! The film will be screened in Zabriskie 106 and is free and open to the public.
