On Thursday, April 20, Dr. Natalia Pamula, a Kosciuszko Foundation Faculty Exchange Scholar (U of Warsaw), will introduce the film “Sonata,” based on true events of a child diagnosed as autistic and unable to communicate. As a teenager, his diagnosis is questioned, which leads to a remarkable series of events where he dreams of being a concert pianist.
Dr. Pamula’s research interests include disability studies and cultural history of disability.
Attendees are invited to a reception at 4:00 p.m. and a pre-screening commentary at 4:30 p.m. in the Library Research Center. The screening of “Sonata” takes place at 4:45 p.m. and will be followed by question and answer session.
