WATCH TRAILER

Getting There

Ninety percent of Americans rely on cars as their main mode of transportation.But if you’re blind, things are different. Join Claudia Folska Ph.D., Randy Pierce of 2020 Vision Quest, and others as they show us the world as they see it, and demonstrate how “blind wayfinding” — the various ways people navigate the world when they’re visually impaired — can and should serve as the gold standard that shapes our public spaces.

Getting There is a feature length documentary that depicts the challenges and successes of being blind in a sighted world, and examines how designing our spaces with a more universal, accessible approach plays an important role in making the world a better place for everyone.

He has presented thousands of performances throughout the northeastern United States as well as internationally in Canada, England, Switzerland, Germany, and Italy. Pinard has been recognized by his peers as one of the finest close-up performers throughout the Northeast and took the top honors in the 18th Annual New England Magic Competition.Pinard was selected twice as Editors’ Choice for Best Magical Entertainer in “The Very Best of New Hampshire” issues of New Hampshire Magazine.The New Hampshire State Council on the Arts has referred to his “impressive ability with sleight-of-hand.” After attending the premiere episode of Discovering Magic, Rick Broussard, Editor of New Hampshire Magazine, wrote: “Your show is remarkable, Andrew.
