Aphasia: Hope is a Four Letter Word

The film sheds a light on aphasia, an acquired communication disorder impairing a person’s ability to process language due to trauma to the brain, such as a stroke. Tickets are $20, purchased in advance by calling 445-4960 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or at the door prior to the screening. The Nova Scotia Aphasia Association

Written by North Carolina writer, actor, and director, Jim Gloster
, the documentary is about Gloster’s friend and fellow actor, Carl McIntyre
, who suffered a massive stroke in 2005 at age 44 and developed aphasia as a result.
The film’s screening will be followed by a short talk and then a question and answer period with McIntyre.
