Q&A after the film
11 min
Anthony Sherin


Imagine you can’t read this. Imagine you are afraid to tell anyone. Imagine thinking it is all your fault. Imagine the only way to tell if a book is right side up is by looking at the pictures. Imagine the only way you can avoid humiliation and get through school is by being a troublemaker. Imagine being expelled over and over and passed along to different schools only to be someone else’s problem. You reach fifth grade but you have yet to read a two syllable word. You can’t spell your name. You are unteachable. Now imagine a teacher who changes everything.
