Concerning Barriers: Three Films on Disability and Society

Concerning Barriers consists of three films that are about disability from the perspective of people with disabilities.  Each film implicitly and explicitly explores issues and concepts such as accessibility, the medical model versus social model, marginalization, societal response to disability and the Americans with Disabilities Act.  These films together create a more three-dimensional portrayal of disability than what is commonly shown in the media. Save 25% by buying these films in this bundle.
