For our last "trailer of the day," let's look at "The D Word: Understanding Dyslexia." (Here's the YouTube link.)
This documentary uses animation and testimonials to explain how dyslexia affects people, and the ways people have found to cope with the learning disability. The movie also features interviews with famous people -- including billionaire Richard Branson, stock-market executive Charles Schwab, California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and lawyer David Boies -- who have overcome dyslexia.
The documentary is directed by James Redford, son of Sundance Institute founder Robert Redford. It's paired with "The Movement," a 43-minute documentary narrated by Robert Redford and ski legend Warren Miller.
"The D Word: Understanding Dyslexia" screens in the Documentary Premieres section of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
