Blind since birth, Rachel Flowers has developed tremendous musical skills—not only on keyboards, but also on flute, guitar, bass, ukulele, and vocals. In addition, Rachel possesses an uncanny knack for channeling the styles of the musicians whose performances she flawlessly executes. Yet she still manages to infuse her work with just the right touch of her own voice, all the while exuding the obvious delight she takes in what she’s doing. Hearing is Believing captures the thrills and challenges faced by this up-and-coming musician and her supportive family, many of them Central Coast natives. After the movie Rachel Flowers will perform live on piano, and participate in a Q&A with director Lorenzo DeStefano. 104 min. USA.
