Presented with Meyer Foundation for Disabilities, a panel discussion will follow the film.
After graduating from the prestigious Perkins School for the Blind, a quirky and determined young woman named Michelle Smith — who is on the autism spectrum and legally blind — becomes isolated and homebound. Michelle passes time on the computer, feeding her interests and bold curiosity about the world beyond her walls. Online, she meets and falls in love with a young college student named Michael, and together they become involved in a local fetish role-playing community. Through her relationship with Michael and their adventures in this new sex-positive community, Michelle experiences a burgeoning empowerment and finds the acceptance that has eluded her since her time in school. BEST AND MOST BEAUTIFUL THINGS gently reveals how all the most beautiful things, including love and sexuality, are not bound by disability.
Following the film will be a panel discussion with Cheryl Wichman, parent of a child who has a visual impairment and is on the spectrum; Rachel Carver, Public Relations Coordinator at Outlook Nebraska, Inc., who is herself blind; Donna Hultman, Outreach Consultant for the NE Center for the Education of the Blind (NCECBVI). Mary McHale, President of the Meyer Foundation for Disabilities will moderate.
There is a limit of two passes per person.
