Code of the Freaks

Online - ReelAbilities Boston and Disability Reframed present Code of the Freaks Film

6:15 PM Tuesday, March 24, 2020

This Event has moved online, but registration is still required.

Join the ReelAbilities Boston Film Festival and Disability Reframed: A Community Film Series for an open-captioned screening of Code of the Freaks, a blistering critique of Hollywood representations of disabled characters. The film gives the mic to some of Hollywood’s most incensed and ignored critics - actual disabled people.
Code of Freaks is also a reference to the disability community itself, which in spite of a history fractured by institutionalization, isolation, and segregation from the rest of humanity, has emerged to build a political and cultural movement.
Warning: this film contains sexual content and violence, particularly against people with disabilities

Remote Communication Access Realtime Translation (CART) has been requested for the online panel. 

For sign language interpreters or other accommodations, please contact RealAbilities Boston as soon as possible at or call 617-244-9899.
