This year’s powerful short films include Surreality, portraying the sense of validation and loneliness that come with receiving an aspergers diagnosis at age 57, and Hannah, a film that explores the playful ambition of a young dancer and athlete with a disability, celebrating motion, energy and elegance of human movement and adrenaline. Being Seen details heart-wrenching, candid and articulate conversation between individuals who, rather than defining themselves by their diagnosis, strive to create meaning, meet adversity and dream of their futures.
We hope these films give attendees a reason to learn more about The Arc Pikes Peak Region’s vision of creating inclusion – a community where all individuals are embraced and respected.
