FREE PBS Movie Screening "The Eyes of Me" 4/20 6pm Wright Museum

Rejoice Relive Reconnect

How do you see yourself, when you can't see at all? At the Texas School for the Blind students juggle the pressures of high school with the added struggles of growing up blind. This extraordinary film spends a year with four blind teens learning how to fit in and live independently. Forced to confront the world without sight, they share their inner-visions of the outer world. Ultimately, you cannot understand their perceptions without challenging your own.

"The Eyes of Me" is a co-production of ITVS. In partnership with the Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind and the Commission for the Blind, representatives from each group will participate in a panel discussion immediately following the film.

This event is FREE and open to the public.
