Join us online for the second annual Nothing About Us Without Us Virtual Film Festival, April 19-21. This year’s films are a thought-provoking and poignant set of films each shedding light and insight into important disability experiences. Topics span brain injury, post incarceration, sub-minimum wage and employment, and the profound advocacy movement that established today’s disability rights. Finally, we’ll conclude the festival with a group discussion about the importance of including people with disabilities and diverse disability experiences in film.
The festival’s opening film, the Great Fight for Disability Rights, takes you through the difficult issues, personalities, and emotions of those who fought on the front lines of the disability rights movement more than a generation ago. With the significant challenges of our society today, these advocacy stories from the 1960s and 1970s feel especially timely. While the issues and circumstances of life have changed, the passion and purpose of fellow humans fighting for change is profound and meaningful. We encourage you to consider joining this or any of the other film sessions to take in their profound stories. All films will be streamed live during the festival, and sessions will provide a lot of opportunity for discussion and connecting with others.
