Out of My Head
Directed by Susanna Styron, 77 minutes, USA, Documentary

Audio description provided by Woman of Her Word
Investigating the devastating migraines that frequently debilitated Styron’s daughter, the film exposes the reality behind what most people think of as simply a bad headache. In fact, migraine remains a mysterious and stigmatized neurological disease afflicting nearly a billion people worldwide. Features author Joan Didion reading from her legendary essay "In Bed."

Bottom Dollars
Directed by Jordan Melograna, 60 minutes, USA, Documentary

The 1938 Fair Labor Standards Act created the revolutionary workers’ rights protection: the minimum wage. Yet as the film uncovers, Section 14(c) still provides a terrible and abusive exemption that allows employers to pay "special minimum wages”—wages less than the Federal minimum wage—“to workers who have disabilities.”

Design-Ability
Directed by Otoxo Productions, 33 minutes, Spain, Documentary

The design studio La Casa de Carlota in Barcelona harnesses the unique skills of a creative team that includes members with Down syndrome and autism.
