This short documentary by Alison Glennie, aims to challenge stereotypical views of disability.
It had it’s genesis in the workshop that followed the first film festival screening of the comedy short ‘On The Pig’s Back’ made in 2014. That comedy features a cast of adults with intellectual disability, who are supported by Cope Foundation.
The workshop was designed to document feedback from the actors and Alison posed the question “How would you wish the world to see you?” The actors responses form the basis of this socially engaged documentary, which incorporates many diverse members of our community.
