American Printing House for the Blind Summer Film Fest!

Hi Friends of APH (American Printing House for the Blind)

I wanted to make sure you all know about our film series that’s taking place in June, July, and August. Each month we will screen a film featuring a major character who is blind, followed by discussion. All movies will be audio described,  and we’ll treat everyone who comes to popcorn and cokes!

We begin with Eyes in the Night on June 22, 12:30-3.  The film focuses a detective who is blind and his faithful and unusually competent guide dog named Friday. It was released in 1942 and is one of two movies based on a series of books about this detective by Baynard Kendrick.

Other films in the series are Bright Victory (1950) and A Patch of Blue (1962).

Admission is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Email me or call me 899-2213 to register.

I hope you can come. It’s going to be good!
