You are invited to a screening of the film, Our Hearts Aren't Disabled (run time: 85 minutes). The film examines the romantic lives and trials of six people living with mobility challenges. Its characters are people of different ages, genders, orientations, and ethnicities. Multi-disciplinary artist Josh Dunn features as both subject and interviewer as he endeavours to shed light on the difficulties he and others face. Sometimes a painful journey filled with heartbreak, Our Hearts Aren't Disabled also features a healthy dose of wit, humour, and perseverance, helping the viewer to see that disability places no barrier on the power and beauty of one's humanity.

The screeing will be offered as a hybrid presentation in person (Life Sciences Centre, Room 236) and virtually via YouTube. A Q&A with the filmmaker, Josh Dunn, will take place via Microsoft Teams following the screening. Instructions on joining online will be shared with those who register.
