No Ordinary Hero: The Superdeafy Movie opened at the Rome International Film Festival last week in Rome, Georgia and won the Shepard Award for innovative film-making.
SUPERDEAFY must reveal the man behind the cape to find true love and inspire a young deaf boy to believe in himself. The movie follows the evolution of this unique hero. A beloved character and role model, SuperDeafy has a worldwide following. He has been turned into t-shirts, posters and dolls… and now a movie. This film marks the first time in cinematic history that a SAG commercial feature film is being executive produced exclusively by deaf executive producers and directed by a deaf director. The film will be 100% open captioned every screening.
The film is rated PG and is subtitled.
Tickets are free and open to the public and can be reserved at http://www.tugg.com/events/11232 (Wednesday, September 17) and http://www.tugg.com/events/11239 (Thursday, September 18).
