No Ordinary Hero: The SuperDeafy Movie Screening Next Week at Gallaudet University

If you’re close to Washington, D.C., Gallaudet University will be screening the award-winning film No Ordinary Hero: The Superdeafy Movie September 17 and 18 with a special guest Superdeafy himself! This screening is sponsored by the College of Arts and Sciences (CAS) and the Theatre and Dance Program.

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 (Wednesday, September 17) and (Thursday, September 18).
