SOUND/VISION premieres this Saturday, February 27 at YouTube.com/MissSherryVine, part of gaySVTVworld?s SVTV Short Film Fest.??

At its core, SOUND/VISION tells the story of two people struggling with identity and overcoming adversity through the power of music.? ?It reflects on the connection between teacher and student and how students are often our best teachers,? says writer Ari Rossen, who plays Adam in the film.?
