Rainy Rochester Rocks
I know i know im biased – its me home so i gotta sing her praise especially when she has a festival of ASL artistic expression – film, rap, performance and visual art.
A great deal of the scenes were shot in Rochester, NY and several of the actors hail from here so ya hoo. I finally get to see it after seeing many folks tell me about the behind the scenes scene ; ) Oct 27 – Nov 2 AMC Lowes Webster – FREE REFILLS on the popcorn and ya get to put on ur own melted butter. [i know i know – sometimes it dont take much to make me happy]
check out the trailer and the listing for a cinema near u and make sure u think happy and thankful thoughts that the producers decided to re-cast with a Deaf actor and involve so many other Deaf actors to play Deaf characters – that came as a result of the push from our community and from the producers having a good heart and righting that wrong decision and it has paid off! The film hits the big SCREEN – ya hoo!

Ruthie Jordan Show
Ruthie Jordan gave a benefit performance in support of Advocacy Services for Abused Deaf Victims (ASADV) Family Fun day where she had lots of audience participation from young to old. I didn’t attend the event but folks shared how adorable the kids were participating in ABC stories and group performances. Ruthie Jordan has many talents, one of which is letting and getting the wee things to shine and show of their grand ASL and their and its potential.
