STAMMER PROJECT PREMIERE: WHAT A NIGHT
STAMMER PROJECT premiered at The Yellow in London on Thursday 11th November. The venue was at full capacity with family, friends, supporters and folk who were simply drawn to this event. The film was received so so well (phew!) and the Q & A sparked interesting discussions in an organic, fluid way. In a nutshell - It was the dream premiere night!
We are now planning further screenings as we just have to get this film in front of more eyes. We saw first-hand how this film can raise the type of awareness around stammering that we were hoping for. We really feel that we have something special here and we want to share it with you.
Film Synopsis: An uplifting and inspiring story of 6 people living with a stammer. This film captures their profound mission to raise global awareness about stammering through the power of music - using their voices. This is a story of courage, strength, trust and the incredible power of the voice!
