SAY: “In The Spotlight” - 60s
Alex Gorosh directs this cogent piece of work for The Stuttering Association for the Young (SAY), who claim that "everyday sentences take as much courage for kids as public speaking". This is illustrated by a young cast transported to packed classrooms, theatres, and auditoriums when they open their mouths.
The scenario forces viewers to consider every word with the protagonists, and think about whether they make stammerers feel supported or pressured in real life. Given how rusty people's social skills are post-lockdown, those who already work harder to make themselves understood deserve patience more than ever.
