Disability & Horror: Identity & Community
The history of disability representation in horror has been full of questionable portrayals, but why do so many people with disabilities love horror movies? In this conversation, moderated by Rabia Sitabi, three award-winning horror filmmakers with disabilities will discuss how their disability identity has shaped their work in genre cinema as well as their craft. Additionally, they will discuss the relationship between the horror community and the disability community, and how gatekeeping of identities still prevents both of these spaces from becoming truly inclusive.
