Is There Anybody Out There?

Advance Tickets are available to the general public for select screenings, including this one: http://sxsw.com/advance-tickets

My body is extremely unusual, and I’ve never seen another like my own. "Is There Anybody Out There?" is a personal documentary following my search to track down other individuals with the same rare disability as me. The film also explores the experience of being a disabled pregnant woman as well as the emotional process of becoming a mother, when I unexpectedly find out I am pregnant. Perhaps more than anything however, this story is about ableism – about living in a world where you’re seen as less than human – and what it takes to love yourself fiercely despite this.
