Tuesday, October 18, 2016
SOUTH FLORIDA GAY NEWS -- People with disabilities are the largest minority group in the United States, according to the Current Population Survey. Still, despite the considerable size of this community, people with disabilities have had minimal representation in film. For three decades, the international disability film festival Superfest, which this year is being co-presented by the Paul K. Longmore Institute on Disability at San Francisco State University and the Lighthouse for the Blind San Francisco, has given both emerging and established filmmakers a place to present edgy and new perspectives on disability on the silver screen.
