Blind virtuoso to perform at SLO Film Festival

When Rachel Flowers performs it is often hard to believe she has overcome blindness to become an amazing musician. That’s why “Hearing is Believing” is such a fitting title for the documentary about her.

The new non-fiction feature was selected by the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival to be screened at the Historic Fremont Theatre on Sunday, March 19.

And film festival-goers will have a chance to see and hear Rachel Flowers perform live after the film.

The film shows Flowers appearing with Stevie Wonder, Dweezil Zappa, Arturo Sandoval, Taylor Eigsti, Keith Emerson, Benny Chong and the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony.

Director Lorenzo DeStefano and executive producer Patti Channer said making the movie was a labor of love.

Rachel Flowers was profiled on 60 Minutes as a child, and now performs around the world.

The festival hopes to sell out the theatre for the live concert.
