Diversity Commission Film Series - CinemAbility: The Art of Inclusion

 This dynamic documentary will take a detailed look at the evolution of "disability" themes in entertainment, from film and TV to the Web, to see if the media has had a hand in transforming the societal inclusion of those with disabilities. Our in-depth investigation has gone behind the scenes to interview Filmmakers, Studio Executives, Film Historians, and Celebrities, and utilizes vivid clips from Hollywood's most beloved motion pictures and TV shows to focus attention on the powerful impact that entertainment and the media can have on society. Do disability portrayals in the media impact society? Or does the media simply reflect the public’s ever-changing attitudes? This important documentary explores these questions and more to see if the media has had a hand in transforming the societal inclusion of the disabled, and to prove how an enlightened understanding of disability can have a positive impact on the world. 98 minutes
