This Ability is an innovative filmmaking project that puts the tools of media creation directly into the hands of people with developmental disabilities. Formed as a partnership between the National Film Board and the Burnaby Association for Community Inclusion, participants met weekly, engaging in regular workshops and hands-on training with filmmaker/mentor Lorna Boschman. Over the course of the year, the members of the This Ability Media Club acquired the skills to tell their own stories in their own way. The result is six short films that celebrate our shared humanity while revealing the contributions that are made by all members of society.
