Adam Hartzell at Fandor.com reports on three of this year’s festival selections that deal with disability:

“It’s nice to see Indiefest include a couple films that step beyond the documentary in featuring disabled actors playing disabled characters. One is short Japanese feature There Is Light (Yukihiro Toda) and the other is the Chadian film Grigris (Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, 2013). The approach of each film is different, but each demonstrates what is added to cinema when the disabled are cast in such roles.”
