Join ReelAbilities Houston for a discussion around Feeling Through, an Academy Award® nominated short film and accompanying documentary.
A coming of age story that follows 18-year-old Tereek, a kind but guarded teen wandering the streets of New York, desperate for a place to crash, and his encounter with Artie, a DeafBlind man in need of help getting home. What begins as an awkward meeting between strangers becomes an intimate bond between friends, and a nightlong journey that forever changes Tereek. It's ultimately someone who can neither see nor hear Tereek who is able to tune into what he is truly struggling with, inspiring Tereek to realize his own sense of purpose.
It is the first film ever to feature a DeafBlind actor in a lead role.
