About the Event
WFTV members are invited by Reclaim the Frame to attend a screening of Is Anybody Out There? followed by a Q&A with director Ella Glendining.
Groundbreaking documentary, Is There Anybody Out There?, follows filmmaker Ella Glendining’s global search for someone with a body that looks like hers, and explores what it takes to love yourself fiercely as a disabled person in an ableist world.
“My body is extremely unusual, and I’ve never seen another like my own. Is There Anybody Out There? is a personal documentary following my search to track down other individuals with the same rare disability as me. The film also explores the experience of being a disabled pregnant woman as well as the emotional process of becoming a mother, when I unexpectedly find out I am pregnant. Perhaps, more than anything however, this story is about ableism – about living in a world where you’re seen as less than human – and what it takes to love yourself fiercely despite this.” - Ella Glendining
Is There Anybody Out There? has picked up awards including The Silver Horn from Krakow Film Festival and the FIPRESCI International Film Critics Prize.
This event is a relaxed screening with descriptive subtitles and optional audio description. There will be live captions for the post-screening Q&A.
Certificate 12A, film running time 1hr 27 minutes.
