Brain Injury Film "Who Am I To Stop It," Will Be Screened March 4
Pre-CSD Club and Public Health Club are hosting a March 4 screening of the documentary "Who Am I To Stop It," followed by an audience Q & A with co-directors Cheryl Green and Cynthia Lopez. The film is free and open to the public.
The documentary is tied to National Brain Injury Awareness month, as it focuses on isolation, art, and transformation after traumatic brain injury. Green was inspired by her own experience creating art after brain injury to partner with Cynthia Lopez make the film. The film follows three artists as they navigate social isolation, stigma, and rebuilding their identities, using their art to critique an ableist world and assert their agency and autonomy. It examines the themes of spirituality, sexuality, poverty, education, stigma, family, and self-advocacy.
March 4, 6:30 p.m.
McGill Auditorium in Murdock Hall
The screening will be wheelchair accessible, closed captioned, and assistive listening devices will be available. Refreshments will also be provided.
