Out of Darkness

CLASSIC. Adapted from the autobiography, Helen Keller, the Story of My Life. At just 19 months old, Helen Keller was stricken with an illness that left her blind, deaf, and mute. Her struggle to overcome her handicaps with the help of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, is recounted in this heartfelt adaptation. Keller’s extraordinary educational advances under the tutelage of Sullivan are highlighted, including the monumental moment when Keller learns how to spell “doll” on Sullivan’s hand and at the Kellers’ water pump when Helen understands the word “water” to mean the cold liquid flowing over her hand. Audiences of all ages will love the story of Helen Keller, who overcame immense hurdles to become an activist and author.
