disTHIS! Film Series Presents "Born Freak: An Evening with Mat Fraser" Wednesday, May 3!

Our next event in the disTHIS! Film Series on May 3, will feature a screening of the film "Born Freak" in which British actor Mat Fraser reviews the controversial history of freak shows and dares to ask, "will society ever view disabled performers as more than freaks?"

"Born Freak" was winner of the Best of the Festival at Superfest International Disability Film Festival in 2004.

After the screening, audience members will have the opportunity to discuss the provocative issues raised in "Born Freak" with the film's star, poet, researcher, and thalidomide ninja himself, Mat Fraser, who received rave reviews in last year's "The Flid Show" in NYC and will be in town from London for a few days to shoot footage on location in Coney Island for his latest project based on the life of circus performer Sealo, The Sealboy.

SPACE IS LIMITED!  To secure a seat, please RSVP by calling: 212.251.4092
