Dislecksia: The Movie, Free Screening March 15th at Rider University 7p-9p. Talk-back with Emmy-Winning Filmmaker, Harvey Hubbell V and panel discussion to follow.
Hubbell’s latest endeavor, seedling.tv
(a curated, subscription-based media platform focused on lifelong learning in the fields of education, wellness, and sustainability).
Dislecksia: The Movie is being hosted by Rider University Counseling Services and The Laurel School of Princeton for the event; in collaboration with Captured Time Productions, Learning Ally, DDNJ (Decoding Dyslexia NJ), and seedling.tv.
Throughout the film, Hubbell V (who himself is Dyslexic) shares not only his personal journey from affable preschooler to mislabeled ‘stupid and lazy kid’ but also the vast number of famous names who similarly struggle(d) with Dyslexia, including such luminaries as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Sir. Richard Branson, Pablo Picasso, and Steven Spielberg. The film also features "dyslexic icons" such as Billy Bob Thornton, Barbara Corcoran, Joe Pantoliano, Billy Blanks, and Sarah Joy Brown. Dislecksia: The Movie’s message is shared (as RogerEbert.com reviewer, Odie Henderson, penned) “equal parts confessional, celebrity interview, activism, in-depth discussion, and cheerleader for the afflicted. It's packaged in an easygoing 83 minutes...(that) never wears out its welcome.”
This film’s message is in complete alignment with The Laurel School of Princeton’s mission. The school’s administration and staff specialize in educating children grades 1–8 with language- based learning differences (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, et. al.) and serves Central NJ and Eastern PA; priding themselves on developing students' strengths in academics, the arts and entrepreneurship.

Dislecksia: The Movie will be shown from 7-9pm in the Mercer Room of the Daly Dining Hall - Rider University, 2083 Lawrenceville Rd., Lawrenceville, NJ. There will be a panel discussion with the filmmaker immediately following the film.
