As an Eye to Eye fellow, I had weekly meetings with the founder of the organization, David Flink. I conducted several interviews over zoom with comedians and artists who have a learning difference and educators who work with children with a learning difference. I used my own story with my learning differences, and what I learned from the interviews, to create a film about how the arts can benefit everyone, but especially children who learn differently. I took footage of the interviews, and footage I filmed about Cape Cod, Boston and D.C. to create this film. This film will be posted on the Eye to Eye National website, to be shown to the world.
