Disability on Film: Sound of Metal
Hosted by ReelAbilities Film Festival Toronto, Miles Nadal Jewish Community Centre (MNjcc)
On May 12 in Disability on Film, we look at Darius Marder's Academy Award-winning Sound of Metal, starring Riz Ahmed as Ruben, a heavy metal drummer in recovery thrown into crisis when he suddenly loses his hearing. The conversation will consider the film as an example of a disability recovery melodrama, as well as touch on Ahmed's and Paul Raci's performances and responses from the Deaf and hard-of-hearing community.
Streaming on Crave, and for free on Hoopla through the Toronto Public Library.
Tickets are $8. No attendee will be turned away due to lack of funds! Email email@example.com for more info on discounts and complimentary ticket options.
Event will be captioned with Zoom Auto captions. Other accessibility features available by request.
