My Beautiful Stutter (2018)
NAME OF FILM: MY BEAUTIFUL STUTTER (2018)
DIRECTOR(S): Ryan Gielen
GENRE: Documentary Film
SYNOPSIS: Five kids ages 9 to 18, from all over the United States enter experimental, interactive and arts-based programs at SAY, The Stuttering Association for the Young, based in New York City. After a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, some have found themselves close to suicide, others enter withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from fluency training and the pressure to not stutter or remain silent. Over the course of a year of SAY events, workshops and camp, we witness firsthand the incredible transformation that happens when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience for the first time the revolutionary idea at the heart of SAY: it’s okay to stutter.
Napa Valley Film Festival returns this fall for the ninth edition, opening with Just Mercy, a powerful true story, starring Michael B. Jordan, Brie Larson and Jamie Foxx.
