“Our bodies are also occupied territories. Perhaps the ultimate goal of performance, especially if you are a woman, gay or a person ‘of color,’ is to decolonize our bodies and make these decolonizing mechanisms apparent to our audience in the hope that they will get inspired to do the same with their own.” -Guillermo Gómez-Peña

Permutations of the Species: Towards an Anthropology of Independent Disability Film Festivals

A joint presentation by David T. Mitchell and Sharon L. Snyder

April 1, Thursday
4 to 6 PM

David T. Mitchell, Institute on Disabilities, Temple University

Sharon L. Snyder, Brace Yourselves Productions

In this co-presentation, Mitchell and Snyder analyze the ideological, aesthetic, and pedagogical effects of disability film festivals. Mitchell and Snyder are particularly interested to explore the way such festivals, by screening an array of international films, manage to respond to newly evolving concepts of “being disabled” even as they resist articulating a shared identity based on collective coherence of experience, affect, or diagnosis.
