ReelAbilities Boston, the metro area’s extension of the national ReelAbilities Film Festival, continues today and throughout this week at various venues in and around (and even slightly outside) the Hub.
Co-presented up our way by the Boston Jewish Film Festival, RAB showcases films that highlight people with and are made by people with disabilites. The lineup of films are generally films you may have heard about before, but may not have seen yet, and now you have the chance to do so.
Day 3 kicks off with True Smile, a documentary about 26-year-old Sergio Aznárez Rosado, who despite born both blind and with autism lives a life packed with adventure. The film focuses on Sergio’s 1,300-kilometer tandem bike ride with his brother, Juan Manuel, who pilots the bicycle.
First, there’s That Which Is Possible, follows a community of painters, sculptors, musicians, and writers who create art at the Living Museum, an art space on the grounds of a large state-run psychiatric facility in Queens, NY.
The film is co-presented by Gateway Arts.
Both films today screen at the Museum Of Fine Arts in the Alfond Auditorium. True Smile screens at 12 PM; That Which Is Possible at 2:30 PM. Both screenings are free, with tickets available at the door.
