Dislecksia: The Movie
U S A
Directed by: Harvey Hubbell V
Filmmaker Harvey Hubbell V is one of 35 million Americans who have dyslexia. Hubbell journeys across the USA to learn more about the condition, and discovers that scientists are close to unlocking the secrets of dyslexia, which is the key to teaching everyone how to read, and stamping out illiteracy.
About one in seven Americans has some degree of dyslexia. It’s a condition that makes it hard to read the way other people do. But by using special techniques, taught or self-invented, most dyslexics can learn to function normally. A lot of dyslexics are brilliant, talented, and successful. The documentary ‘Dislecksia: The Movie’ will present the latest scientific knowledge about dyslexia, and the experiences of dyslexics. Viewers will come to know dyslexics — and those who teach and study them — not just as statistics or talking heads, but as people. They’ll also learn a lot about dyslexia: its causes, its effects, and what can be done about it.
