A New Kind of Listening is an hour-long documentary by NC filmmaker Kenny Dalsheimer which takes us inside the creative work of the Community Inclusive Theater Group, as director Richard Reho inspires cast members, some with disabilities, to be writers, actors and dancers in an original collaborative performance piece.
In the process, Chris, who has never spoken a word and has been mislabeled “profoundly mentally retarded”, breaks through into stunning self-expression.
Together they prove that a small community arts initiative has the power to transform lives.
