Co-presented with Emerson Access: the Student Disability Union.

Directed by Alison O’Daniel, documentary/ drama, American Sign Language,English and Spanish with English subtitles, United States, 92 minutes, 2023.

Drawing upon her experiences with hearing loss, specifically navigating between hearing and silence, Alison O’Daniel expands definitions of sonic experience beyond ear-reliance as our sole auditory skill. In the seven shorts in The Tuba Thieves, the artist’s fascination with a series of tuba robberies from Los Angeles high schools became a comparison point between loss of this tonally-rich instrument to her daily experiences of missing information and filling in conversation gaps. O’Daniel inverts script-driven filmmaking processes by writing scenes based on the musical scores, which were commissioned in advance of developing the visual narratives. Discussion with director Alison O’Daniel to follow. This conversation will have an ASL interpreter available in addition to live captions. BIPOC, GD, D [OC, AD]
