The Inner World of Aphasia: A Vintage Film Revived

Nov 14, 2017

Eugene filmmakers Naomi and Edward Feil

The Inner World of Aphasia is a 1967 film by Eugene filmmakers Edward and Naomi Feil, which explores the inability to speak due to a brain injury. It tells the story in a way which uniquely combines the techniques of art films and medical education films. As part of the Schnitzer Cinema series, it will be screened at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Eugene on Wednesday, November 15th at 7 p.m. Ken Feil is the son of the filmmakers, and senior scholar in residence in the Department of Media and Visual Arts at Emerson College. He speaks with KLCC's Eric Alan about the film's enduring power, and its place in the orphan film movement.
