A Special Screening of "My Beautiful Stutter"
The Canadian Stuttering Association is excited to announce the screening of the award-winning documentary, “My Beautiful Stutter” at the University of Toronto, this February 15th at 1:30 PM. This is the first in a documentary series aimed at starting a national conversation about stuttering, to promote a wider awareness and understanding of stuttering and to support individuals who stutter across Canada.
Storytelling is a powerful tool that helps us connect with human experiences, and better understand the challenges faced and overcome by those around us. Join us for our screening of My Beautiful Stutter and help give a voice to a group of young people who are often rendered voiceless. They all have something to say. We just need to listen.
About the Film
In MY BEAUTIFUL STUTTER, five kids ages 9-18, from all over the United States, enter experimental, interactive and arts-based programs at SAY, The Stuttering Association for the Young. After a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, some have found themselves close to suicide, others enter SAY withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from fluency training and the pressure to not stutter or remain silent. Over the course of a year, 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.
