THE WAY WE TALK

DIRECTOR: MICHAEL TURNER - OREGON (SCOTTS MILL, OR)

 

(DOC) Michael Turner (THE LIFE OF VESPER GEER), winner of the 2015 Oregon Media Arts Fellowship, struggles with one of medical science’s most baffling and enduring disabilities—stuttering. On the surface, stuttering is syllable repetitions, prolongations, blocks, and various physical tics. But as he illustrates in the film, stuttering is like an iceberg, with most of the major symptoms below the surface. Emotions caused by the disorder— anxiety, depression, denial, and negative self-image—are rarely confronted in speech therapy or even by people who stutter.

(DOC) Set in the West Bank city of Ramallah, The Palestinian Circus School welcomes The Lido, a visiting circus school from France. In a month, the two schools must come together to create a mobile circus for children. Living in the West Bank means that mastering acrobatics isn’t the only challenge for a traveling Palestinian circus—hitting the road means an obstacle course of permits and checkpoints along the way. But for these students, the circus is a form of peaceful resistance; instead of surrendering to despair, they overcome their difficult circumstances through the power of art and unity.
