“The Tuba Thieves” – Indie Lens Pop-Up

“The Tuba Thieves” – Indie Lens Pop-Up

WSIU, the Carbondale Public Library, and ITVS invite you to a free film screening, dinner, & community conversation on the Independent Lens film The Tuba Thieves. Join us after the screening for a discussion on the film and how it relates to our Carbondale community. Box meals available for the first 35 attendees; made possible by WSIU through iTVS grant funding.

ABOUT THE FILM: What is the role of sound and what does it mean to listen? Hard of hearing filmmaker Alison O’Daniel uses a series of tuba thefts in Los Angeles high schools as a jumping-off point to explore these questions. Through several d/Deaf people telling stories in a unique game of telephone, the central mystery of The Tuba Thieves isn’t about theft of instruments; it’s about the nature of sound itself.

Stream The Tuba Thieves on Independent Lens beginning Monday, May 20 on WSIU or the PBS App.
