Dir. Michael Barnett | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2014 | 80 min.
The beauty of friendship, community, and diversity is wondrously exhibited when a group of people with disabilities gather in Los Angeles to film a comedy Western complete with saloon brawls, vintage Hollywood sets, and scheming villains. With respectful collaboration and dedication, the cast and crew deliver brilliant performances. This heartwarming documentary, winner of awards at six film festivals this year, incorporates on-set footage, set-piece interviews, and film clips for a stunning behind-the-scenes glimpse into a dynamic, inclusive world of discipline and play, raising the question: why do we so rarely see disabled actors on the big screen?
Parental Guidance: Ages 8+ The film includes gunplay and adult themes.
