About this Event

On behalf of USAC Access on Board, UCLA Disability Studies, ResLife, and The Skoll Center for Social Impact Entertainment, we would like to invite you to attend the free screening of the newly released film “Come As You Are.”

Film: Inspired by a true story - three young men with disabilities (Grant Rosenmeyer, Hayden Szeto, Ravi Patel) flee their overbearing parents for a road trip to a brothel in Montreal that caters to people with special needs, in order to lose their virginity and embrace their independence. Gabourey Sidibe stars as their nurse driver, Janeane Garofalo and C.S. Lee also star as concerned parents hot on their trail. A remake of the award winning, critically acclaimed 2011 Belgian film HASTA LA VISTA.

*Trailer attached below

Panel: The film will be followed by a Q&A panel featuring the cast of the film including actors Grant Rosenmeyer and Hayden Szeto, screenwriter Erik Linthorst, and the man whose story the movie is based on, Asta Philpot; the panel will be moderated by Dr. Amanda Apgar, who teaches the Sex & Disability course at UCLA.

We are excited to be able to share this amazing film with you all and hope you will join us!
