|Description||"Aphasia" tells the true story of actor Carl McIntyre and the effects of a massive stroke he suffered at the age of 44 -- he lost his ability to read, write and speak. Starring as himself, McIntyre portrays his life story with an incredibly nuanced performance. Through humor and pathos Aphasia speaks to anyone who has struggled to meet life's challenges.
A panel discussion will follow the film with speech/language pathologists from VCU Medical Center and a member of the Richmond-area aphasia support group.
VCU Medical Center is proud to be the presenting sponsor for this year's ReelAbilities: Disabilities Film Festival.|
