Special Preview  from the ReelAbilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival

What if you lost the ability to hear the music you love? Would it be gone forever—or could you find a way to get it back again? As her JBFC residency comes to an end, filmmaker Lindsey Dryden joins us to discuss her intimate, perceptive documentary about deafness, music, and the incredible human brain via the actual experiences of a dancer, a pianist, and a music critic.

Q&A Filmmaker Lindsey Dryden has been in residence at the JBFC since Feb. 9, filming, editing, and doing post-production work on her new documentary. Dryden was nominated for Best New UK Filmmaker (London’s Open City Docs Fest) and Best Female-Directed Film (Sheffield Doc/Fest) in 2012, for Lost and Sound. Before starting to make films independently, she worked on TV documentaries for BBC, The History Channel, and others.

This program is made possible through The Kathryn W. Davis Fellowship for International Understanding Through Film with support from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the National Endowment for the Arts.
