Disability Films: Talk

TALK - The 2001 UK short film Talk is an award winning depiction of common negative misconceptions regarding persons with disabilities. Talk stars British actor Jonathan Kerrigan as a business executive who wakes up to find himself in a world where non-disabled people are a discriminated minority. The film was written and directed by Matthew Parkhill, and produced by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC), an independent UK organization that worked to fight discrimination and promote equality of opportunity for the disabled and those living with chronic health problems. The DRC has recently been replaced by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
