Kickstart Disability Arts & Culture is proud to present a film screening event for “Love at Second Sight”.
Love At Second Sight is an educational film that transforms attitudes about appearance and encourages students to accept themselves and others. It’s about difference and belonging, judgment and inclusion.
Facially different David Roche and his lovely wife Marlena Blavin share their stories with a spellbound middle-school audience. As they explore themes of self-acceptance (David finds his inner beauty) and accepting others (Marlena moves from revulsion to friendship), the students’ reactions move from discomfort and stunned silence to laughter, delight and engagement. From their faces and feedback, it is clear that their perceptions have quickly shifted as they are encouraged to take that vital second look.
Aditionally, the evening will feature:
Guitarist: Lazare Halk
Poet: Jasmine Sanchez-Zeller
Poet: Jessica Leung
Note: The PAL Studio is wheelchair accessible and this event will be ASL interpreted.
Tickets available through Eventbrite
