- Round 16
To the Water: Access ≠Accessibility
Exclusion from access to natural landscapes and the inaccessibility of bodies of water are sources of pain for many disabled people, causing profound sadness and grief. We are excluded from being able to access basic human needs, including pleasure and joy, that others find in bodies of water. The experimental documentary To the Water: Access ≠ Accessibility highlights and supports disabled artists while sharing cross-disabled people’s lived experiences, knowledge, and crip desires about their access to the water.
