The New Aesthetics of Disability Panel at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival



In The Reason I Jump, sound artist Nick Ryan explores neurodiverse experiences of sound to make a complex audio world. Director Rodney Evans’s Vision Portraits documents how he and other blind/visually-impaired artists make in a visual medium. Filmmakers Nicole Newnham and Jim LeBrecht (Crip Camp), Michelle Miles (How Did We acquire Here?), and choreographer Alice Sheppard defy conventional representations of disabilities through their work. Discover how these artists and others are reaching for new audiences and re-imagining the possibilities of their forms through their own unique perspectives. Moderated by Eric Hynes (curator of film, Museum of the Moving Image).
