The Feeling Through Experience
Pittsburgh Premiere

The Feeling Through Experience includes two short films available for screening through the run of the festival followed by a live Q&A with director Doug Roland (see details below) and others advocating for the Deafblind community. Inspired by Roland’s personal experience, Feeling Through (18 minutes), tells the story of an unexpected encounter between a homeless teen and a Deafblind man on a city street. Connecting the Dots (24 minutes), reveals the story behind the making of the film and introduces us to the first known Deafblind actor ever to be cast in a film.

Feeling Through and Connecting the Dots are preceded by the presentation of the Meritzer Award to Oakland for All and the short film, Tragically Deaf.
