In observance of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) ResponsAbility, the USPTO’s volunteer employee organization for disability awareness and action, will screen the award-winning documentary film “CinemAbility.”
Written and directed by Jenni Gold, a disabled Hollywood director, the film is narrated and co-produced by Jane Seymour and features an ensemble cast including Jamie Foxx, Ben Affleck, Gary Sinese, William H. Macy, and many others. This dynamic documentary takes a detailed look at the evolution of “disability” in entertainment by going behind the scenes to interview filmmakers, studio executives, film historians, and celebrities. Utilizing vivid clips from Hollywood’s most beloved motion pictures and television programs, CinemAbility focuses attention on the powerful impact that entertainment and the media have on society’s perception of disability.
CinemAbility is currently being screened only at select charity functions and film festivals. ResponsAbility is excited to receive the honor to host this exciting event for federal employees and the general public. We anticipate a full-house, so please reserve your tickets early.
