In honor of Disability Employment Awareness Month, the Office of Special Services (OSS) is working to raise awareness of disabilities by offering a movie screening of FIXED.
FIXED Mon., Oct. 26 from 1-3 p.m. (movie is 60 minutes, with a discussion afterwards for those who can stay) in room 1504.
What is FIXED about??
A haunting, subtle, urgent documentary, FIXED questions commonly held beliefs about disability and normalcy by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and mind forever. Told primarily through the perspectives of five people with disabilities: a scientist, journalist, disability justice educator, bionics engineer and exoskeleton test pilot, FIXED takes a close look at the implications of emerging human enhancement technologies for the future of humanity.
Check out the trailer here.
Please contact the Office of Special Services if you have questions or would like to schedule a discussion of the topic or a showing of the movie in your class.
