Why is this story so unique
Disability rights is possibly the last minority revolt following on from the women’s movement, the civil rights movement in the US, the indigenous rights movements in countries like Australia and the gay right movement.
Unlike other rights movements, it’s one that any of us can join at any time by virtue of accident or illness, and yet so far this story has barely be seen as worthy of attention… certainly never in Australia.
Filmmaker Sarah Barton has been working on this documentary for more than four years and is now in the editing phase. We are currently seeking crowd finding through pozible and invite you to pledge a donation between now and 18 March 2013.
