Event description

Description

Celebrating 30 years of the Frankston Disability Access and Inclusion Committee and International Day Of people with Disability you are invited to a screening of the Sarah Burton film Defiant Lives.

‘Defiant Lives’ tells the story of the rise and triumph of the disability rights movement and introduces the most impressive activists you’ve never heard of. The film uses exclusive interviews with elders (some now deceased) who have lead the movement over the past five decades, and combines this with rarely seen archival footage sourced from Australia, the United States, and Britain.

This is a film full of extraordinary characters who put their lives on the line to create a better, and very different world, where everyone, regardless of impairment, is valued and can participate fully.

Join us for a free screening of Defiant Lives – an award-winning documentary about the rise and fight of the disability rights movement.
