Cinema Touching Disability
The 10th annual Cinema Touching Disability Film Festival will take place Nov. 1 and 2 at the Alamo Village. The festival hosted by the Coalition of Texans with Disabilities shines a spotlight on films that portray disabled individuals in a positive light. This year’s offerings include “Getting Up: The Tempt One Store,” a documentary about a graffiti artist who uses technology to continue his artwork after being diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease, and “The Crash Reel,” director Lucy Walker’s documentary that tells the story of champion snowboarder Kevin Pearce, who suffered a traumatic brain injury while preparing for the 2010 Olympics. The movie won the audience award for documentaries at this year’s South by Southwest. For more information visit CTDFilmFest.org.
