Dis/Able DIY Lecture: jes sachse with Sean Lee

Sean Lee and jes sachse meet you with snacks & bath tubs from the desk of Big Access to discuss what is disability legibility in film.

Join your tiny affable pisces duo Sean Lee and jes sachse as they meet you with snacks & bath tubs from the desk of Big Access to discuss WHAT is disability legibility in film? Have we finally shifted from the politics of the neoliberal maxim of representation?

This discussion is part of the larger program Dis/Able: Dismantling Ableist Filmmaking that was held in April 2021 as part of CFMDC’s symposium “The Breadth of” hosted on CFMDC.tv. Dis/Able: Dismantling Ableist Filmmaking showcases how "dis"abled filmmakers subvert the film-making process to be more inclusive of their accessibility needs. As Jaene Castrillon says, "The goal of this program is to show how accessible film-making IS, and help re-imagine a future where we are at the table leading and guiding a more equitable, inclusive and decolonized way of making films."
