SICK! Festival: Sandra Alland & Lisa Mattocks - Viewfinder

Tuesday 21 March 11:00 until 18:00
ACCA Cafe Bar

Sandra Alland and Lisa Mattocks have created five new short documentaries. In this collection of films, disabled and D/deaf people are taking back the camera or the stage or the poem, moving away from the pity, tragedy or supercrip inspiration narratives that are so common when speaking about disability – we’re telling our own stories in our ways. In addition, Sandra and Lisa have co-curated the Viewfinder programme of ten short films, Unapologetic Self-Portraits, with SICK! Festival.

Viewfinder is an initiative led by Disability Arts Online and supported via funding from Arts Council England and Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, to fuel the development and distribution of socially engaged arts practice.

UK Premiere. All films captioned – selected films with audio description and BSL.

SICK! Festival commission. Presented with Disability Arts Online & Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts.
