ReelAbilities, Houston Disabilities Film Festival 2015: Touch of the Light
Touch of the Light is a story of a blind piano prodigy from rural Taiwan and his friendship with a young aspiring dancer. This coming-of-age story opens with a gifted blind young pianist (Huang Yu-Siang, playing himself) leaving his village for the university in the big city. Despite his mother's fears, Huang quickly makes friends and eventually meets Chieh, an aspiring young dancer whose dreams have been stifled by a miserable family situation and an unsupportive boyfriend.
In each other, these two amazing individuals find strengths neither knew they possessed, powering this gentle, exuberant crowd-pleaser with the power of positive thinking.
