What does it mean to listen? An exploration of musicality set against a theft.

Indie Lens Pop-Up, presented by ITVS, INDEPENDENT LENS, and Fayetteville Public Library will host a screening of The Tuba Thieves. Between 2011 and 2013, tubas were stolen from high schools across Southern California. When reporters told the story, they focused on the thieves. They did not seem curious about what a marching band sounds like without the lowest sound. No one asked what happens when sound is stolen or lost, owned or delegated.

The Tuba Thieves starts from these questions. It is a film about listening, but it is not tethered to the ear. It is a film about Deaf gain, hearing loss, and the perception of sound in Los Angeles — by animals, plants, and humans. The human protagonist of the film is Nyke Prince, a Deaf woman whose story runs parallel to that of Geovanny Marroquin. Geovanny was the drum major at Centennial High School when their tubas were stolen. Their stories are connected by the omnipresence of noise pollution — helicopters, airplanes, leaf blowers, car traffic. Los Angeles life during the time of the tuba thefts is interrupted by unconventional reenactments of historic concerts: an irritated man leaves John Cage’s 1952 premiere of 4'33" (where a pianist sat at a piano for 4 minutes and 33 seconds without playing a note); the 1979 final punk show at the infamous Deaf Club in San Francisco; and students tell how they organized a 1984 surprise Prince concert at Gallaudet University, an institution for d/Deaf and hard of hearing people.

Against this backdrop, hard of hearing filmmaker Alison O'Daniel generates new sensitivity to sound and meaning in an unconventional documentary experience.
