HEARING IS BELIEVING
A portrait of Rachel Flowers, a blind musical prodigy.
Flowers was born more than three months premature, which soon cost her her vision. Her parents recognized and nurtured an affinity for music, providing formal training and encouraging her exploration of different instrument instruments, singing, and composing. After the young musician began posting videos to YouTube, she developed a fanbase and began performing around the country. While Flowers is likeable, DeStafano’s clunky film is a largely structureless project that spends the bulk of its running time following its protagonist to a series of unremarkable performances and school visits before eventually culminating in a guest performance during a Dweezil Zappa Las Vegas show.
