Therapeutic Rec Concludes Free Movie Series With ‘Blindlight’

The Therapeutic Recreation Section will conclude its free “Movies with a Message” series on Tuesday, Nov. 9 with a documentary film titled “Blindsight.” The film will be shown at Mahlon Adams Pavilion in Freedom Park, 2435 Cumberland Avenue, at 6:30 p.m.

“Blindsight” highlights the gripping adventure of six Tibetan teenagers on their journey to climb a mountain in the shadow of Everest. A dangerous journey soon becomes a seemingly impossible challenge made all the more remarkable by the fact that the teenagers are blind. The film provides a glimpse into the lives of individuals with unique abilities, allowing us to appreciate the differences and similarities of all people, and to share in their challenges and triumphs.

The Therapeutic Recreation Section provides services for individuals with disabilities to help ensure inclusive opportunities in all program services and accessibility at all Department parks, facilities, special events and classes.
