ReelEducation programs bring the conversation about inclusion to our city's youth by exposing students to the lives, stories, and talents of individuals with disabilities; giving students the opportunity to think about their own perceptions and attitudes towards individuals with disabilities. Post-screening discussions allow students to interact with the filmmaker, protagonist, educators, or individuals with disabilities and have an open dialogue about topics addressed in the film(s). ReelEducation programs enable further reflection on how individual classes and entire schools can become more inclusive communities.
A one hour film with a post screening discussion with the film star! The star of this film, Enrique Oliu, will speak after the screening. Available at no charge to show in your school or at a theater
Enrique, a man blind since birth, hears the crack of the bat and knows if it's a single, double, or home run; he listens for the ball singing into the catcher's mitt and knows if it's a curveball, fastball, or changeup. He also happens to be the analyst for Spanish-speaking radio during the Tampa Bay Rays games.
