7th Disability Film Festival
Coming soon to London's National Film Theatre is the 7th Disability Film Festival, between 30 November and 4 December. This 5-day event will showcase some of the disability-related films and televisual media around at the moment.
The festival kicks off on the 30th at 6.30pm with a screening of Dancer, described as: "a sparkling song and dance epic of sibling rivalry starring the incomparable Kuty, India's one-legged dance sensation.".
Over the following days, a wide variety of films will be shown, including Nightmare On Old Street about a wheelchair soccer team, Back to Bombay, exploring issues of deafness in India, and What Do Stick People Wear Under Their Clothes? - a 2-minute short which aims to give the "definitive answer to this burning question".
The event ends with the screening of US box office hit Murderball, about "the story of a group of world-class athletes and their journey from the gyms of middle America to the Athens Olympics.".
If you're going, maybe I'll see you there.
