Description

Sponsored by the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability, and LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired

Join us for movies and pizza from our Superfest Disability Film Festival, curated for your viewing enjoyment. We will have pizza and refreshments in addition to great films. All films are audio described. Here is the lineup:

Awake - Anna, a woman living with MS is visited by Doreen, a door to door proselytizer who makes herself at home and stays the day, slowly defrosting her non-welcome. Together they walk in the park, bake a chocolate cake and watch an Ingmar Bergman film. Both women are blind, played by blind actors Alex Bulmer and Margo Cargill in this existential comedy. Short, 21 minutes.

Regionne Caecorum- If a society is built with disabled people as the norm, will the one-eyed man really be king? Stop motion Short, 3 minutes

When Brendan Met Hiroe - Brenden Borellini, a deaf/blind photographer from Australia yearns to return to Japan to meet up again with blind photographer Hiroe Takahashi who he met at a blind and deaf/blind workshop in photography the year before. Documentary Short, 23 minutes.

Stumped - Climber Maureen Beck is not here to be your inspiration. She was born missing her lower left arm, but that hasn't stopped her from going hard. “I don’t want to just be a good one-armed climber,” says Maureen. “I want to be a good climber." Documentary Short, 25 minutes

Attendance is free, but please register.
