The Real Helen Keller
Director: Liz Crow & Ann Pugh | Producer: Liz Crow & Ann Pugh
Synopsis: More than forty years after her death, Helen Keller is still known internationally as the little deaf-blind girl, the "miracle child" who triumphed over adversity. It is an image that endures through the Hollywood film "The Miracle Worker" - but Keller never chose that image, and she battled against it all her life. Hidden from the public gaze was the real Helen Keller, a flesh-and-blood woman, writer and radical activist, suffragette and socialist.
