The Tuba Thieves | Wed, May 1, 2024, at 7:30pm EDT

By Alison O’Daniel

What does it mean to listen? An exploration of musicality set against a theft.

Between 2011 and 2013, tubas were stolen from high schools across Southern California. Against this backdrop, hard of hearing filmmaker Alison O’Daniel generates new sensitivity to sound and meaning in an unconventional documentary experience.

There will be an opening screening of The 21 Film Series: Gloucester County from NJ PBS. Hear the story of Gloucester resident Anna Baldwin, who embraced her journey with Tourette Syndrome and has been educating others since her initial diagnosis in sixth grade. Through soccer and the TOPSports program, she found refuge—a space to connect with and inspire special needs children, encouraging them to embrace their uniqueness.
