Twenty-three-year-old insrumentalist composer Rachel Flowers has spent the entirety of her life developing an ear for music. Born 15 weeks premature, Flowers lost her eyesight at birth. Lorenzo Destefano’s new film ‘Hearing is Believing’ takes us into Rachel Flowers’ world.
“We shot for 52 days over almost a two-year period. It got bigger than we expected. It’s about a little girl, in a little town, in a little house, but we found a big story there we feel,” said Destefano. “We call her hyper abled, as opposed to disabled.”
