Dyslectics of the World Untie! 

Film Forum

Harvey Hubbell V has created a humorous look on a serious challenge: dyslexia, a disorder he himself struggles with and chronicles in his latest film, Dislecksia: The Movie. At one point the screen fills with a montage of his childhood report cards written in teachers' 1960s penmanship: "He can barely write his own name," "He is completely lost in group instruction," "He doesn't know how to hold a pencil." The film interviews celebrities with dyslexia, educators and neuroscientists to help better explain the challenge of learning and living with the disorder. Hubbell, who recognizes that his success in film was in part because he worked with his strengths—an ability to think in images and stories—rather than being defined by his written-word deficiencies, has created a celebration of the differences found in learning challenges. Hubbell, along with members of the Bend community, will be part of a post-movie panel and Q&A to discuss the film. 6 pm. Thursday, Jan. 23, McMenamins Old St. Francis School, 700 NW Bond St. $7.
