Join us for a screening of Our Hearts Aren’t Disabled, followed by a Q&A session with filmmaker Josh Dunn, BA(’05). This movie examines the romantic lives and trials of six people living with mobility challenges. Its characters are people of different ages, genders, orientations and ethnicities.

Josh, a multi-disciplinary artist, features as both subject and interviewer as he endeavors to shed light on the difficulties he and others face. Sometimes a painful journey filled with heartbreak, the film also features a healthy dose of wit, humor and perseverance, helping the viewer to see that disability places no barrier on the power and beauty of one’s humanity.

To date Our Hearts Aren’t Disabled has been selected by The Atlantic International Film Festival (NS), Bluenose Ability Arts & Film Festival (NS), First-Time Filmmaker Sessions @ Pinewood Studios (UK), Liberation Docfest (Bangladesh), Parrsboro Film Festival (NS), The Paus Premieres Festival (UK), Africa International Human Rights Film Festival (Africa), has won the best first time filmmaker award in Cannes International Cinema Festival (France) and has won the best screenplay award in BOSIFEST (Serbia).
