Group Description

An announcement list for the disTHIS!: Disability Through A Whole New Lens monthly film series sponsored by the Disabilities Network of NYC and the Council for the Study of Disability at New York University.

disTHIS! showcases quality narrative, shorts, documentary and feature films with disability themes beyond the tragic/heroic trap moviegoers have come to expect.

Space is wheelchair accessible. Whenever possible all films will include ASL interpretation, open captions and/or audio description. All disTHIS! movies, talkback sessions and related events are open to the public. $5 suggested donation.

“Forget everything you’ve seen before,” said Lawrence Carter-Long, curator of the film series and Executive Director of the Disabilities Network of NYC. “We won’t subject viewers to another hokey tearjerker or movie of the week melodrama with manipulative violin music. The disTHIS! film and talkback series will be funny, sexy, and always provocative. This is disability through a whole new lens.”

“Movies about disability have been more concerned about diagnosis than they have with character development, storytelling or innovation for far too long,” Carter-Long concludes. “Hosting disTHIS! with NYU is our way of helping correct that. We hope you’ll be as thrilled watching these films as we are to be presenting them."

Location: New York University, 19 University Place. First Floor theater.


The disTHIS! film series is not affiliated with disTHIS - the crip culture experience website, but we think they rock & urge you to support their work.
