A deaf man. A model. An amputee. A romantic comedy with a few bugs- now on DVD!

As one of the most popular films on the film festival circuit, winner of eight awards (Ft. Lauderdale FF, Fargo FF, DancesWithFilms FF, etc.), “What’s Bugging Seth” is now available worldwide on DVD.

Avoiding the pitfalls of most disability movies, “What’s Bugging Seth” combines romance, warm humor, and  surprise ending to capture your heart with its love story.  

Seth Singer (Ross Thomas- CSI, American Pie, Beyond the Break), a driven young deaf man, believes in one thing: that he is no different from anyone else.  Determined to prove his point, he throws his life savings into a pesticide business despite the presence of a well-established competitor that will do anything to see him fail.  Along the way, Seth meets Alma (Amy Purdy), a double amputee, and they find romance as they bond over their disabilities.  However, will their connection be strong enough to withstand the return of Nora (Nora Kirkpatrick- John From Cincinnati), Seth’s high school love, who comes home after a disappointing modeling career?  

The film was written and directed by Eli Steele who is deaf and wears the cochlear implant.  Many incidents from his life inspired the film, including the comic sex scene- an audience favorite.

Ross Thomas received critical acclaim for his portrayal of Seth Singer.  He worked very closely with director Eli Steele on the deaf dialect and mannerisms. In-Forum praised him for his “closely observed performance.”

Amy Purdy, a below the knee double amputee, was also praised for her impressive acting debut in the role of Alma.  Losing her legs to bacterial meningitis, Amy was able to draw on her own personal experiences to bring depth and humor to her role.

“’What’s Bugging Seth’ had a tremendous film festival run and I am thrilled for the opportunity to release it to a wider audience,” said director Eli Steele.
