DOCUMENTARY FILM ON THE HISTORY OF TEXAS ASSOCIATION OF THE DEAF NOW AVAILABLE FOR THEATRICAL EXHIBITION:
JOURNEY THROUGH DEAF TEXAS
Austin, TX- The Texas Association of the Deaf (TAD) and Davideo Productions hosted its world premiere of a documentary film about TAD on June 11, 2009 at the Buena Vista Theatre located at University of Texas-San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas.
JOURNEY THROUGH DEAF TEXAS chronicles the history of TAD since its inception in 1886 and its historic accomplishments that have had an impact on deaf and hard of hearing Texans. This film kicked off the 45th biennial TAD conference at the El Tropicana Riverwalk Hotel in San Antonio on June 12 & 13, 2009.
This film took more than two years to produce and was made possible through a grant from the Travis County Council of the Deaf and subsequent funding from TAD. The film was co-produced, directed, and edited by David H. Pierce who has worked in the television industry for 24 years.
Stephen C. Baldwin, Ph.D., past president of TAD, co-producer, writer, and researcher of the film, says that "the film is not all about politics and legislative endeavors, but it has sentimental moments about leadership, failures, triumphs, ignorance, apathy and the need to continue to work on making lives better for the Texas Deaf Community."
Additional funding will be raised for further distribution of the film as well as the production of a book to accompany the film.
This film is available for theatrical exhibition in your area. For more information on bookings, please contact Stephen C. Baldwin at email@example.com.
