"Let Me Finish"
Alex Murphy, a member of our chapter and a film student at the University of Texas, has produced a wonderful short documentary about stuttering featuring members of the NSA Austin Chapter. "Let Me Finish" (15 minutes) was publicly released on YouTube on February 22, 2011.
At a time when stuttering is receiving national attention because of the success of the Golden Globe and Oscar winning movie, "The King's Speech," we hope this intimate collection of interviews will draw attention to the cause of the National Stuttering Association -- and our active chapter here in Austin -- in bringing hope and dignity to children and adults who stutter in the United States.
Directed by a person who stutters, “Let Me Finish,” shares the personal experiences of Evan, Behnaz, and Joy, three life-long stutterers living in Austin, Texas. Through their compelling interviews, their group meetings of the National Stuttering Association Austin Chapter, and expert testimony from leading UT Speech Language Pathologist, Dr. Courtney Byrd, the documentary explores the physical and psychological effects of stuttering, dispels commonly held myths perpetuated by the media, and informs friends, family and others how they can help make communication a little easier for stutterers in their own lives.
