As part of Disability History Month, we are happy to participate in the Together!2015 Disability Film Festival.

The programme is on the Together! 2015 DFF website.

There are many good discussions to be had and great films to discover Рwe recommend Margarita with a Straw (Saturday night 6.30pm)  in particular.! Some of us were there at the premiere last year and met some of the cast and dinner with Malini Chib.

But also Sunday night when we will be discussing Chocolate and other films depicting disability in films.

6.30pm:¬†Chocolate (¬†Prachya Pinkaew; 89m;¬†2008). This feature-length drama from Thailand stars¬†Yanin ‚ÄėJeeja‚Äô Vismistananda¬†in her debut film performance as Zen, a young girl with autism who becomes a martial arts expert in her efforts to protect her family.¬†Unsuitable for children and anyone who is sensitive to depictions of violence.

Followed by Let’s Talk about Disability Film with the Sisters of Frida at our café-bar partner Gerry’s, opposite the Theatre Royal Stratford East.
