The New Aesthetics of Disability


Friday, January 31, 2:00 p.m.–3:30 p.m.
Filmmaker Lodge, 550 Main St. (2nd floor)
Open to Festival credential holders

In The Reason I Jump, sound artist Nick Ryan explores neurodiverse experiences of sound to create a complex audio world. Director Rodney Evans’s Vision Portraits documents how he and other blind/visually-impaired artists create in a visual medium. Filmmakers Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht (Crip Camp), Michelle Miles (How Did We Get Here?), and choreographer Alice Sheppard defy conventional representations of disabilities through their work. Discover how these artists and others are reaching for new audiences and re-imagining the possibilities of their forms through their own unique perspectives. Moderated by Eric Hynes (curator of film, Museum of the Moving Image).

This panel will have an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter on-site.
