Canadian premiere
In the presence of the director

A spate of robberies in Southern California schools had an oddly specific target: tubas. In this work of creative nonfiction, d/Deaf first-time feature director Alison O’Daniel presents the impact of these crimes from an unexpected angle. Blending documentary and fictionalised performances and set to an L.A. landscape/soundscape never quite seen before, this film explores a dimensional experience of deafness and reorients the audience auditorily in an unfamiliar and exhilarating way.
Alison O’Daniel will be present for a Q&A following the screening. Don’t miss her artist talk at POP Symposium, on Sunday, Oct.1 at 12:30 p.m. at the Rialto Hall.

*Note on accessibility: the film will be screened with Open Captions. ASL interpretation will be provided for the audience during the Q&A.
