Living with 'disability' is a reality for many of us, yet seldom are disabled members of society seen on the big screen. Breakthrough hits like 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', 'My Left Foot' and 'Children of a Lesser God' illustrate the rich depth of experience and valuable stories that should be and are being told.
