THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA at Hamlin Robinson School and on HBO

THE BIG PICTURE: RETHINKING DYSLEXIA a documentary directed by James Redford, will premiere on Monday, October 29, 2012 at 7 p.m. on HBO. The film focuses on a dyslexic high school student who pursues admission to a leading college – a challenge for a boy who didn’t learn to read until 4th grade. This student, Dylan, is Redford’s son.   Additional accounts of the dyslexic experience from children, experts, and iconic leaders at the top of their fields, help us to understand that dyslexia, a persistent problem with learning to read, can be as great a gift as it sometimes is an obstacle.

The Hamlin Robinson School is pleased to offer this remarkable film on January 17th, 2013 6:30 in the HRS Learning Center.  Credit hours will be available for teachers.

Miss Representation screening at Hamlin Robinson School

Hamlin Robinson School is pleased to partner with Seattle Girls’ School and Lake Washington Girls Middle School to present Miss Representation. This film exposes how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America. The film challenges the media‚Äôs limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls, which make it difficult for women to achieve leadership positions and for the average woman to feel powerful herself.

Stories from teenage girls and provocative interviews with politicians, journalists, entertainers, activists and academics, like Condoleezza Rice, Nancy Pelosi, Katie Couric, Rachel Maddow, Margaret Cho, Rosario Dawson and Gloria Steinem build momentum as Miss Representation accumulates startling facts and statistics that will leave the audience shaken and armed with a new perspective.
