Art Without Borders
Art Without Borders in cooperation with the NOA project (Nordic Outsider Art) is hosting a panel and film screening of works made by and for the disabled community. A group of outsider and disabled artists from Sweden, Finland, Denmark and Iceland came together to make a collaborative film based on the cinematic genre of surrealism. This film will be screened alongside the contemporary Indywood film Guest Room directed and written by Joshua Tate, which follows a young woman with Down Syndrome (GLEE‘s Lauren Potter). She must face the harsh realities of adulthood after an unexpected turn of events with her boyfriend. The screening will be followed by a panel of filmmakers and educators with the specific theme and goal of exploring the difference between film works made for the community versus films made by this specific community.
