“I think more than anything else we want the audience to walk away from the movie seeing one example that people with disabilities and people with intellectual disabilities, in particular, can really hold their own in front of the camera. They can really represent themselves on screen and do a great, authentic, industry-standard job doing that work. And beyond that, it really is about inclusion in general: so inclusion in front of and behind the camera, and about inclusion in our communities. I want that conversation to be raised and people to really start thinking about how best to support adults with disabilities.”
