CHANGE PERCEPTIONS WITH 800 FAST PACED, PROVOCATIVE AND POWERFUL IMAGES
Featuring poet and performer Cheryl Marie Wade, this video takes a fresh look at what it means to be disabled in America. Features over 800 video and still images. This is not the usual anthropological study of disabled people as specimens. It uncovers issues related to: freedom of choice, disability pride, independent living, the power of language and images, sexuality, community, and the right to live with dignity.
It assumes that there is a disability culture, and at the core of this culture is empowerment, pride, and a flat out, no apologies celebration of difference.
