Grade 6 Attends Reel Abilities Film Festival

Grade 6 saw Rally Caps, a film featured in the ReelAbilities Film Festival. The film is about a young baseball player whose dreams of pitching for a Little League travel team are derailed by a devastating injury on the field. At the end of the film, the 6th graders were able to participate in a Q&A with film festival founder and director Isaac Zablocki and the director of the movie Lee Cipolla. They had many insightful questions about the writing, casting, and filming process, as well as the experience of working with actors with disabilities.
