Join us for a night of heartfelt films and insightful conversations as we explore the challenges and victories of living with disabilities. In partnership with posAbilities, Cineworks presents three new collaborative film works shot on 16mm film and processed in the Cineworks Annex darkroom. Each film was co-directed by a student at Emily Carr University of Art & Design and a member of the posAbilities community to present new perspectives on creative collaboration, analogue processes and living with disabilities.
