This dynamic documentary takes a detailed look at the evolution of “disability” in entertainment by going behind the scenes to interview filmmakers, Film Historians, and Celebrities, and by utilizing vivid clips from Hollywood’s most beloved motion pictures and television shows to focus attentionon the powerful impact that the media can have on society.
