Social Action Film Nights
SCREENING ON 25th JUNE
Arts in Action in partnership with the The LD Network presents a screening of The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia, a documentary that provides personal and uplifting accounts of the experience of dyslexia from children, experts and iconic leaders, such as Sir Richard Branson and financier Charles Schwab. Directed by James Redford and an official selection at Sundance 2012, the film not only clears up the misconceptions about the condition, but also paints a picture of hope for all who struggle with it.
Shining a spotlight on the latest scientific and psychological research, the film also highlights the work of Doctors Sally & Bennett Shaywitz, co-founders and co-directors of the Yale Center of Dyslexia and Creativity to illuminate the hidden origins and implications of dyslexia. Proving that dyslexia is a neurological issue and not a character flaw, The Big Picture beautifully illustrates that while the condition is an obstacle, it also carries some unique advantages, and ultimately can be overcome.
