First Deaf/Blind Actor

Joe Randeen/ Films, Industry, Storytelling, Videos

I’m a big fan of OMELETO, a YouTube Channel featuring some of the best short films.  This morning I spent some time looking through some of the films and I came across FEELING THROUGH, a story of a deaf/blind man and a homeless teen.  First of all, it’s a very touching movie but what really impacted me was a documentary that followed entitled – Connecting the Dots

Connecting the Dots is a documentary about the first Deaf/Blind actor in a film, the film – Feeling Through.  It’s a truly amazing story.

  • ‘Connecting the Dots’ follows the journey of making the groundbreaking film ‘Feeling Through’ including: • Partnering with Helen Keller National Center
  • Casting & working with Robert Tarango – the 1st DeafBlind actor to star in a film
  • The year-long search for Artemio, the DeafBlind man who inspired the film.

I would encourage you to watch BOTH films, starting with: FEELING THROUGH and the watching CONNECTING THE DOTS
