Disability Awareness Month caps off with screening of ‘FIXED’

Performers on the stage of 'FIXED'

Northern Arizona University’s celebration of Disability Awareness Month culminates with a free screening of FIXED: The Science/Fiction of Human Enhancement at 7 p.m. Oct. 27 in Prochnow Auditorium.

The 2013 documentary questions commonly held beliefs about disability and normalcy by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever.

Told through the perspectives of five people with disabilities: a scientist, journalist, disability justice educator, bionics engineer and exoskeleton test pilot, FIXED uses a dynamic mix of verité, dance, archival and interview footage to challenge the notion of what it means to be human in the 21st century.

A discussion of the film with director Regan Brashear will follow.

The film is free and open to the public. Tickets are required for entry and may be obtained through NAU’s Central Ticket Office.
