On behalf of Film Studies at Trinity, we are thrilled to invite you to the premier screening of the Trinity College Guest Film Project, Coaching Colburn: Finding Love and Laughter after Autism.  Students, as part of the Guest Filmmaker Course and under the guidance of visiting artist Jeff Bemiss, created this short film.
James Colburn was born with Fragile X Syndrome. At 26, he is a child at heart who finds joy in the smallest things and uses his gift of comedic timing to inspire those around him. James is living proof there is love and laughter after autism.
The screening, along with a post-film discussion, will be held during the Common Hour on Tuesday, February 4, in the Gallows Hill Common Room. We hope you might encourage some of your colleagues and students to attend this screening as well.   We anticipate this will be a dynamic screening and a fascinating discussion.   Light lunch will be provided.
Sonia Cardenas, Associate Academic Dean

STUDENTS ARTISTS:  Sachika Balvani, Katherine Brandl, Briana Chang, Avery Dwyer, Ben Green, Alex Hirschl, Alexandra Kozar, Avery Paskal, Denicia Peterson, Rebecca Smith, and Paroma Soni.
Common Hour intends to offer the Trinity community an opportunity to absent themselves from daily tasks and concerns, gather, and engage in topics of interest and enjoy performances, lectures, discussions, and readings that enrich our cultural and intellectual lives. The designated weekly hours also seek to showcase the best of what occurs within our campus community.  A light lunch will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis during Tuesday Common Hour. If you plan on bringing a class or group to a Tuesday Common Hour program, please e-mail in order for adequate food to be requested.
