"Hearing Is Believing", the new feature documentary from award-winning filmmaker Lorenzo DeStefano, introduces the world to the astonishing young musician and composer, Rachel Flowers. Born 15 weeks premature, Rachel soon lost her eyesight. At 2 she began playing every song she heard by ear, including Bach fugues. The child had perfect pitch. DeStefano and his team have created a dynamic and engaging portrait of 2 years in the life of a tight knit American family, a single mom and her 2 kids, living paycheck to paycheck in Oxnard, California, with Rachel's stunning music as the soundtrack. The film revels in Rachel's joyous and free-flowing love of song, illuminating the bonds of family and the divine mysteries of creativity. The great musicians appearing with Rachel include Grammy winners Dweezil Zappa, Arturo Sandoval, Stevie Wonder, Grammy nominated jazz pianist Taylor Eigsti, the late Progressive Rock icon Keith Emerson, and 50 members of the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony.
