A very important piece
1 March 2018 | by Edel_GardnerSee all my reviews

Whirlpool is an extremely important story, following an important moment in the life of the incredible Helen Keller, who changed the lives of many through her own personal struggle and her activism. The visual telling of this story opens the audiences eyes to the unique perspective of Helen Keller as a deaf and blind woman. Very creatively achieved! A well told window into a huge life.
