Dumbstruck Is All About the Dummies And Their Humans 

New DVD release

West of the Mississippi, not many have heard of Fort Mitchell, Ky. And why would they, other than it's the ventriloquism capital of the world and hosts an annual ventriloquist convention. This documentary illuminates the people for whom ventriloquism is life.

Dumbstruck is the story of five ventriloquists--or "vents"--and their desire to make it in the business of literally putting words in someone (or something) else's mouth. The group includes a former beauty pageant queen, a middle-schooler, a cruise ship performer, a family outcast and an America's Got Talent winner.

Ventriloquism only becomes quirkier as you get to know the intelligent people behind the dummies.
