Documentaries: The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia

Have an interest in dyslexia? Have HBO? On Monday, October 29th at 7pm, HBO will be showing James Redford's film The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia.

The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia world premiered at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival and takes a look at the developmental reading disorder in a way that hopes to provide a clearer view of the minds of people who live with it. This topic is close to the director's heart, as James Redford's own son, Dylan, was diagnosed at an early age. Among those filmed, interviews with Charles Schwab, Richard Branson, David Boles, and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, which gives insight into how some individuals develop their own unique strategies for coping that helped lead them to paths of success.

Tune in or jot down for viewing at a later date - enjoy!
