Canada 2006. Director: Bonnie Sherr Klein
Post-screening discussion with Bonnie Sherr Klein
Co-sponsored by National Film Board of Canada.
Art, activism, and disability are the starting points for what unfolds as a funny and intimate portrait of five surprising individuals. Shameless marks Not a Love Story director Bonnie Sherr Klein’s return to a career interrupted by a catastrophic stroke in 1987. Always the activist, she now turns her lens on the world of disability culture and, ultimately, the transformative power of art.
