121108bd-movieDislecksia: The Movie

About one American in seven has some degree of dyslexia. It’s a condition that makes it hard to learn to read the same way other people do. With some special techniques, taught or self-invented, most people with dyslexia, many of whom are brilliant, talented, and successful, can learn to function normally. In this comic documentary, dyslexic director Harvey Hubbell V — with assistance from dyslexic writer Jeremy Brecher and several dyslexic crew members – will present the latest scientific knowledge about dyslexia and the experiences of those with dyslexia. Movies at Midway – Upstairs Screening Room, November 11th, 10:25 A.M.
