Executive Produced by Paul Rudd, My Beautiful Stutter follows five kids entering the interactive and arts-based program SAY, The Stuttering Association for the Young. After a lifetime of bullying and stigmatization, these kids enter SAY withdrawn and fearful, exhausted and defeated from fluency training and the pressure to not stutter or remain silent. Over the course of a year, witness firsthand the incredible transformation that happens when these young people of wildly different backgrounds experience for the first time the revolutionary idea at the heart of SAY: it's okay to stutter.

Q+A to follow with director.

Film will be screened with open captions and CART.
