The Eyes of Me

The Eyes of Me -- How do you see yourself, when you can't see at all?  At the Texas School for the Blind students juggle all the usual pressures of high school along with the added struggles of growing up blind.  Spend a dynamic 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 changing your own.

Free.  Panel discussion will follow.

ITVS, the co-presenter of Independent Lens, in cooperation with KOCE-TV (PBS) and the Humanities Concentration and Student Affairs at Soka University, are proud to present Community Cinema, a free monthly documentary film series.  ITVS funds and presents award-winning documentaries and dramas on public television, innovative new media projects on the web, and the Emmy Award-winning weekly series Independent Lens on Tuesday nights at 10 pm on PBS.

Previews of upcoming Independent Lens films will be shown from February to May at Soka University's Pauling Hall classroom theatre, followed by panel discussions with full audience participation encouraged.
