Storyline

"Hearing Is Believing", the new feature documentary from award-winning producer/director Lorenzo DeStefano ("Talmage Farlow", "Los Zafiros-Music From The Edge Of Time"), introduces the world to the astonishing young musician and composer, Rachel Flowers. Born 15 weeks premature, at a body weight of one pound five ounces, Rachel lost her eyesight due to Retinopathy of Prematurity (ROP). At two she began picking up melodies from her musician parents and was soon playing every song she heard by ear, including Bach fugues. The child had perfect pitch. Starting her formal musical education at the age of 4, Rachel spent the next 10 years studying at the Southern California Conservatory of Music, while completing her mainstream education through elementary, middle, and high school. She was featured in two episodes of 60 Minutes in 2005 & 2008, when she was 12 and 15 years old. DeStefano and his team have created a dynamic and engaging portrait of a year and a half in the life of a tight knit... Written by Hearing is Believing Productions, Inc.

No glitz. No melodrama. Just a heartwarming story about an unassuming young woman, Rachel Flowers...

...who lost her sight as an infant, and soon began to demonstrate uncanny musical abilities. In this film, we learn about Rachel's gifts and the joy she derives from music. More importantly, we get to know Rachel and her family, and their everyday challenges. Professional film critics may nitpick the film's home movie style and tone. In my opinion, the director remained admirably restrained. Instead of pumping up the volume or attempting to steer the narrative, he allows Rachel's story to unfold simply and without pretense. He got it just right.
