OPEN-CAPTIONED MOVIE: "No Ordinary Hero: The Superdeafy Movie": Thursday, June 18 at 6:30 p.m.

HPL is pleased to present a screening of "No Ordinary Hero: The Superdeafy Movie" starring John Maucere, with Academy Award winner, Marlee Matlin.

SuperDeafy must reveal the man behind the cape to find true love, and to inspire a young deaf boy to believe in himself. This film marks the first time in cinematic history that a SAG commercial feature film is being executive produced exclusively by deaf executive producers and directed by a deaf director. A 30-minute discussion follows the movie. (The film is 100% open captioned, and the discussion is sign interpreted.)

Thanks to the Friends of the Library for funding this program. Rated PG.
