The following is a review from the Cleveland International Film Festival:
"There are a lot of misconceptions about stuttering. Some might surmise people do it because they’re anxious. Or they might think it’s due to emotional trauma or mental illness. Others may sadly assume stutterers have low intelligence. As you’ll see in WHEN I STUTTER, these assumptions are all false. But the stereotypes have led a number of people to stay silent. Stigmatized by society, they’re afraid to use their voices. Social interactions can be awkward for anyone. But imagine how difficult they would be if you were constantly scrutinizing every word that comes out of your mouth. The fear can jeopardize romantic encounters, compromise job opportunities, and disrupt even the simplest daily interactions—just ordering a cup of coffee can be challenging. Director John Gomez does a terrific job investigating the science behind stuttering, but it’s the intimate moments with the afflicted that are most impactful. Their inspiring stories put a human face on an often misunderstood disorder. With help from speech pathologists and a shift in society’s preconceived notions about stuttering, these brave individuals can finally be heard."
We hope to see you there.
