Join the Stanford Medicine Abilities Coalition (SMAC) and Stanford Department of Art and Art History, Film and Media Studies Program for a virtual discussion and Q&A with filmmaker and Stanford alum Reid Davenport (MFA ’16).
When Reid Davenport was discouraged from studying abroad during his junior year of college based on his disability, he was more than a bit surprised. Davenport decided to travel with a cameraperson throughout Europe, documenting the lives of Europeans with disabilities and exploring the social impact of inaccessibility.
PRIOR TO THE DISCUSSION, we ask that you please view two of Reid’s films, Wheelchair Diaries (26 min) and A Cerebral Game (8 min). WE WILL NOT BE VIEWING THE FILMS DURING THE EVENT. Closed captioning is included for the films. Image described versions are also available upon request.
