Post-screening discussion: director Salome Chasnoff and disability activist Lawrence Carter-Long
Taking its title from Tod Browning’s classic film, this radical reframing of how characters with disabilities are represented looks at a century of Hollywood favorites with a fresh perspective. Disability activists imagine a cinematic landscape that takes people with disabilities seriously.
In collaboration with ReelAbilities Film Festival: New York, a showcase of award-winning films by and about people with disabilities.
