The Barber of Augusta

Toronto native Matthew Genser goes to great lengths to find his unexpected superpower: cutting hair. Like all superheroes, he has a dark side; but in his costume, he’s invincible.  Put on your cape and get lined up!

A black family of five sit on a coach together signing in ASL. Starting from the left, there are three daughters, with the mother and the farther sitting on the end of the couch on the right side.

On Beat

This documentary short follows the lives of a deaf couple with hearing children and the unexpected outlet that brings their family closer together.

This reverent ode to the service dog tells the story of German immigrant Sonja Ohldag, who is diagnosed with a seizure disorder after moving to the U.S. in 1999. Unable to afford a service animal from an organization, Sonja trains her dog herself and takes a chance on Chief, who is not your average service dog.

When Brendan Met Hiroe

A photographer from Australia returns to Japan to reunite with his friend Hiroe, who he met at a blind and deaf/blind workshop the year before. The pair spends an unforgettable day together.

A young man with down syndrome in glasses wears a black suit with a purple striped shirt is pointing one of his arms up in the air.

The Interviewer

When Thomas Howell goes to interview for his dream job at a prestigious law firm, he isn’t expecting that the interviewer will be a quirky, pop culture-referencing, young man with Down syndrome. However, as Thomas, the interviewer, and the firm’s senior partner learn, the right man for the job can come in an unexpected package.

This event would not be possible without the Redwood City Civic Cultural Commission and the Redwood City Parks, Recreation, and Community Services Department.
