Join us for a special FREE advanced screening of the film, refreshments, and post-viewing discussions on Tuesday, March 24 at 6:30pm in Room 130 of Boston University's Wheelock College of Education. MY BEAUTIFUL STUTTER is the powerful and inspirational story of five kids, from all over the United States, who enter experimental, interactive and arts-based programs at SAY, The Stuttering Association for the Young. After a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, some have found themselves close to suicide, others enter SAY withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from fluency training and the pressure to not stutter or remain silent. Over the course of a year, we witness firsthand the incredible transformation that happens when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience for the first time the revolutionary idea at the heart of SAY: it's okay to stutter.
