The Making Of Emily’s Oz

7 minutes

Meet Emily, who is blind and seven years old. People are shocked when they find out that Emily or anyone blind watches movies. What does a person who is blind “see” when they watch their favorite movie? Emily answers the question, as she shares how she envisions characters from The Wizard of Oz. For an entertaining, inspiring, and informative experience, see how her visions of The Wizard of Oz were brought to life. Note: A 60-second excerpt of this production was aired by Comcast during the 2015 Academy Awards to promote their “first talking guide ever” for persons who are blind to locate movies.

    What a wonderful movie. I loved Emily's vision of Oz and her ability to describe the movie seen through her minds eye.
