What do Billy Bob Thornton, Stephen J. Cannell and Joe Pantoliano have in common with 1.4 billion children and adults worldwide?
The documentary film's release coincides with National Dyslexia Awareness month in October.
"Dislecksia: The Movie" opens in Los Angeles on Oct. 11 and New York on Oct. 4, with a nationwide one night only screening event on Oct. 17, followed by a city by city theatrical tour with Director Harvey Hubbell V through early 2014.
The film educates and illuminates many misconceptions about dyslexia, while underlining the need for raised awareness, early identification and social change.
Director Harvey Hubbell V explores issues surrounding dyslexia through a very human, personal lens, weaving his own lifelong experience, the research of scientists and the practice of educators, with the life experiences of celebrities, politicians, and adults and children living with dyslexia.
Intergenerational, multicultural and socio-economically diverse, the film presents a complete picture and the most current information on dyslexia, promotes positive messaging, explores the power of family and community and is the first film to offer an alternative perspective of dyslexia as a learning difference, rather than a disability.
