We are proud to announce DDI’s Spring 2015 Film Forum!DDI staff and the entire community of movie lovers can look forward to more topical, engaging, award winning films than ever! Each film deals with the challenges of facing life with a disability. The season’s offerings will include some shorts and foreign language entries. Presentations are, as always, FREE and will be held on the last Thursday of each month in the Smithtown Hollywood Drive Lecture Hall from 7 to 9pm.
Following each film, a discussion will be facilitated by the person(s) who recommended it to the forum. Film themes will cover issues of first time independence, devastating misdiagnosis, abandonment, isolation and transcendence.
The goal remains the same: to provide entertainment and information while exploring issues faced by individuals with disabilities.
*** Refreshments will be served.
