Join us on Tuesday, May 25th at 7 pm for a discussion of the acclaimed documentary  Planet of Snail: A Blind and Deaf Poet Navigates the World, which follows the journey of a most extraordinary couple. Young-Chan is an accomplished poet who can no longer hear or see. He communicates with his wife Soon-Ho through finger braille, a unique form of communication where words are tapped on each other's hands. Combining breathtaking imagery with Young-Chan's personal writings, Planet of Snail becomes a transfixing portrait of life on what seems like another planet, where touch communicates everything and love conquers all.
