The resource aims to:

  • Examine critically how commercial, Western - mostly Hollywood cinema, has portrayed disabled people.
  • Develop some ways of thinking about disabled people from a human rights based approach as part of school's wider approach to equality.
  • Looks at ways disabled film-makers and their allies have represented disability in non commercial films.
