This year, the Circus of the Senses reserved a special Deaf-Blind Section for NYPADB! We were also invited to the Touch Session! The seats were close to help our children with low vision, we also had an ASL interpreter, wireless headsets for visual description, and an FM assistive listening system. Last year, we were told that the circus would have an induction loop system this year, as per our request. Learn more about The Circus of the Senses

Special Deaf-Blind Feature:

Marie’s Story
Jean-Pierre Améris / France / French / 95 min Based on real-life events that took place in the late nineteenth century, Marie’s Story follows the story of a deaf and blind fourteen-year-old girl who can’t communicate with the outside world. Despite the advice of a doctor who believes she is “dumb,” Marie’s father, a humble artisan, cannot bring himself to commit her to an asylum. Out of despair, he takes her to the Larnay Institute near Poitiers where nuns take care of young deaf women. Her Mother Superior’s skepticism notwithstanding, Sister Marguerite, a young nun, takes Marie under her wing and does everything she can to bring her to open up to her surroundings.
