ABOUT THE FILM

The villain, the hero, the show girls, the townsfolk, the good woman: all the classic Western figures are in the film within this film. The twist? They are all played by disabled people. This is no publicity gimmick; it is the collaborative play/work undertaken by “normal” and disabled people from Zero Actors Camp, where acting projects are a vehicle for “friendship, community and the knowledge that we matter to one another…no matter what.” We see the creative struggles common to any group of filmmakers, and the specific life challenges overcome as the players throw their hearts and souls into their gloriously uproarious film.
