'Praying with Lior'


We highly recommend this film to those looking for an engrossing, wrenching and tender documentary film (an audience favorite at several film festivals) considering the spiritual life and key rite of passage of an adolescent with Down syndrome. Temple University's Disability Studies Program featured the documentary at its meetup this past Wednesday: dinner was followed by a screening at the Bala Theatre. Local and regional scholars and activists came together for an exciting and educational evening. Philadelphia's Fox affiliate recently aired a story about the buzz that is growing around the film as its run is extended in Philadelphia and DC: text + video.

We would love to learn about your responses to the film - add them as comments to this post. A public discussion of the film will be held at the Institute on Disabilities, University Services Building Suite 610, 1601 North Broad Street, Philadelphia, 19122. The brown bag discussion will take place this coming Monday, April 7 starting at 12 noon and lasting until 1:00 pm. Feel free to call for directions and information on parking, 215 204-1356.
If you happen to live in the Philadelphia metropolan area or are willing to make a trip (one of our most frequent attendees lives in metro DC) then we invite you to sign up to Disability Studies, The PHILLY Meetup! for regular announcements on our upcoming events.
