Strange Truth 2024
(NR) USA – 1 hr 32 min – with open captions  
2023 · d. Alison O’Daniel
Starring Nyke Prince, Nyeisha Prince, Geovanny Marroquin, Sam Quinones
Free for Tri-Co students, faculty, and staff

Unfolding amid a streak of tuba thefts from Southern California high schools, this doc-fiction hybrid follows Nyke, a Deaf drummer, and Geovanny, a hearing marching band student (each playing fictionalized versions of themselves), set against the soundscape of Los Angeles. Using unconventional open captions and almost no spoken language, The Tuba Thieves is a thoughtful and innovative examination of what it means to listen.

Discussion with writer and director Alison O’Daniel in conversation with Warren “Wawa” Snipe to follow.

This film will be shown with open captions. American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided at this event. Audio description is available for this screening upon request.
