I attended a workshop by Kenny Fries this week, "Extraordinary Bodies." It was intended to give attendees an overview of disability representation and get them thinking about writing characters that may fall under the category of disability, whatever that means to you.
Kenny showed this extra-long subtitled trailer for "Code of the Freaks" during the workshop, and I fell in love. I absolutely cannot wait for it to be finished. There's no mention of us deafies in the trailer (except for a brief mention of Marlee Matlin at the end -- and the context in which she appears had me laughing. Out loud. Hard), but I related quite a bit to the statements the trailer makes.
Watch it. If you're disabled in any way (visible or not), or know anyone who is, you'll relate. If you're not and you think you don't know anyone, you'll learn something new.
Oh, and you can find more information about the documentary project here.
Update: link for the documentary project has been fixed. My apologies, my dear internet elves!
