Presented by the Park School Parents’ Association, the Cultural Diversity Film & Discussion Series has been meeting since 1995. The purpose of the group is to provide a forum for parents, faculty, students, and members of the community to celebrate multiculturalism and to achieve a greater understanding of diversity issues. All events are free and open to the public.
This highly personal and funny documentary follows a group of disabled athletes preparing to compete in the International Paralympic Games. The world’s best-known disabled filmmaker, Niko von Glasow, hates sports and thinks the games are a “stupid idea.” By including himself in the story, von Glasow serves as an endearing guide to London’s competition. As he meets various Paralympic athletes, including the Rwandan sitting volleyball team and a Greek paraplegic boccia player, his own stereotypes about disability and sports get delightfully punctured. Official Selection of the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.
Panel discussion follows the film screening.
