Film: Aphasia


This screening is presented by The Stroke Comeback Center (SCC)


Aphasia tells the true story about the effects of a massive stroke suffered by actor Carl McIntyre at the age of 44.  He lost his ability to read, write and speak.  Starrring as himself, McIntyre portrays his life story with an incredibly nuanced performance.  Through humor and pathos Aphasia speaks to anyone who has struggled to meet life's challenges. 


Following the film, a discussion will be led by Darlene Williamson, Founder and Executive Director of The Stroke Comeback Center.


All films are captioned or subtitled, and all venues are wheelchair accessible.
