CINEMABILITY: THE ART OF INCLUSION REVIEWED

“Cinemability: The Art of Inclusion” is a documentary about the art of including the disabled in our cinema. While it’s a lot of talking heads, the amazing direction finds a way to include a differently abled voice in talking about an expanding cinema space. Jane Seymour has one of the better interviews, but I enjoyed hearing from Ben Affleck. That being said, it was the kind of documentary that I enjoyed watching once.

It’s great, I just don’t know when I’ll watch it again.
