A shorts programme of films which focus on the lives of disabled people from around the world.
With a spotlight on activism, protest, and the fight for human rights, this programme also includes glimpses of the everyday, shining a light on the joy found in moments of movement and togetherness. The screenings will be followed by a panel discussion on disability rights in Northern Ireland and abroad.
University of Atypical and Northern Ireland Screen are partnering with Belfast Film Festival to present footage from the Northern Ireland Digital Film Archive of stories about disabled and D/deaf people, filmed in the 1960s-2000s. We are missing the self-told stories by artists, activists, independent filmmakers and home movies. Visit us in the Atypical Gallery or get in touch to help change what is in the archive, how these stories about D/deaf and disabled people are told and who they are told by.
