Upcoming (Today!) - Film: Through Deaf Eyes

Here's the excerpt straight from the Planet Arlington website. These films never disappoint me. I know it's going to be a beautiful day, so get outside early and then head over to catch the film as the sun starts to set.

Through Deaf Eyes Special Pre-Broadcast Screening Tuesday, March 13, 2007, 6:30 p.m. A two hour documentary exploring nearly 200 years of deaf life in America. It presents the shared experiences of American history -- family life, education, work and community connections -- from the perspective of deaf citizens. The film will be broadcast nationally on PBS, and locally on WETA TV 26 on Wednesday, March 21 at 9 p.m. It is a production of WETA, Washington, DC and Florentine Films/Hott Productions, in association with Gallaudet University. A selection of clips will be screened, and representatives from the film project will be on hand to answer questions.

This special showing takes places at Central Library, 1015 N. Quincy Street. There is plenty of parking and it's also only a short walk from the Virginia Square Metro.
