Educational Launch Screening of Who Am I To Stop It

Listen to this post: 

This is an exciting time for the documentary Who Am I To Stop It. Since launching with educational distribution coop New Day Films, we’ve gotten sales from California to Delaware to the UK and are looking forward to the chance to screen, well, everywhere. “Who Am I To Stop It” is really different from most TBI documentaries out there. We’re thrilled to use it to present the Social Model of Disability and disability art and to give the community the chance to meet the riveting artists in the film:  Dani, Brandon, and Kris.

If you happen to be in the Eugene, Oregon area at the end of January, you can see the film for free on the big screen and chat with me afterward at the University of Oregon campus. And we will have the captions turned on!

Here’s the event details in picture form and word form.
