CinemAbility: The Art of Inclusion, the groundbreaking documentary about the history of disability inclusion in media starring Marlee Matlin, Jamie Foxx, Geena Davis, Danny Woodburn, Jane Seymour, and Daryl Mitchell, among others, is making its television debut this Monday, September 23rd at 8pm ET as part of TCM’s “Disability in the Movies” Showcase. The award-winning film will be paired with several other movies that are investigated within the documentary such as the Tod Browning curiosity Freaks and the James Whale classic Bride of Frankenstein, with an encore presentation of the documentary paired with different films the following week.
Ben Mankiewicz will be the host of the show, which will also include special guest Jenni Gold, the director of CinemAbility, who is the only female Director’s Guild Member of the DGA who uses a wheelchair. Jenni spent over ten years producing the film, which is currently rated 100% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes and has been called “Eye Opening!” by the LA Times, and “Essential” in Variety.
We hope that you will tune in this Monday to see the film, and support diversity and inclusion in media. For more information about the film, visit www.goldpictures.com.
