Gus van Sant - 2018

Don't worry, he won't get far on foot

Director: Gus van Sant Year: 2018 Duration: 114' Spoken language: English Subtitles: Dutch Partner: STAN - trefpunt verstandelijke handicap

In this biopic about cartoon artist John Callahan, we get to see an unmatched Joaquin Phoenix. Callahan tries to get his life together in the aftermath of an accident that left him paralyzed. The paralysis however seems to be the least of his problems: his self-pity and the alcohol addiction for which he seeks help from the AA have a much bigger impact on his life.

Our organisation

How do we work?

The DisABILITY Film Festival wants to challenge the existing image of people with disabilities. Disabled people are not always dependent. Their lives are not all doom and gloom. Starting from this belief, the festival wants to offer a platform to people with disabilities, to work together towards a more nuanced imaging. With the movie screenings, documentaries and workshops we organise, we mean to take a first step in the right direction.

We'd love to help
