The Disability Art and Culture Project presents the Portland ReelAbilities Disability Film Festival: Portland’s second biennial Disability Film Festival April 20 – August 4, 2018.

Saturday, August 4
7pm-10pm
Gateway Discovery Park
10520 NE Halsey St, Portland, OR 97220

This event is free and open to the public.

This Portland ReelAbilities film screening presents:
– Dance from the Inclusive Arts Vibe Dance Company
– DanceAbility warm-up (audience participation!)
– “The Ikigai Machine,” performance from Myles de Bastion
– A screening of “No Ordinary Hero – The SuperDeafy Movie:”
Based on the internationally known SuperDeafy character, No Ordinary Hero (featuring Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin) is the evolution story of a hero in this family drama. While Tony Kane, a deaf actor who plays a superhero on television, looks beyond his cape to influence a deaf boy, Jacob Lang, to redefine what “being normal” means, he also finds inspiration to transform himself. Jacob is being bullied at school and is constantly misunderstood by his father. When Tony and Jacob’s paths cross, they inspire belief in each other and in themselves.
