This virtual monthly series is a collaboration between Repair, the UCLA Disability Studies program, & the Saks Institute for Mental Health Law, Policy & Ethics at USC Gould School of Law.
We'll be screening the film, "Sins Invalid: An Unshamed Claim to Beauty" (runtime 32 minutes), followed by conversation with the audience. With special guests Mana Hayakawa, Amanda Apgar, and Quinn O'Connor.
About the film: Sins Invalid witnesses a performance project that incubates and celebrates artists with disabilities, centralizing artists of color and queer and gender-variant artists. Since 2006, its performances have explored themes of sexuality, beauty, and the disabled body, impacting thousands through live performance.
About the series: As we navigate urgent public health, racial and economic challenges, we recognize a continuing need for education and dialogue about vital social questions. "Imagining Change: Film and Dialogue About Disability, Racism, Violence, Gender and Power" engages issues of disability, race and racism, healthcare, violence, policing and incarceration, economic justice, law and policy, gender and sexual politics, protest, and social change.
