Actor Adam Pearson will be in attendance at the screening on Wed 27 Feb.

Director Aaron Schimberg’s second feature is a multi-layered, meta film within a film that challenges the portrayal and treatment of disabilities on screen and on set. When Mabel (Jess Weixler) takes the role of a blind woman in a hospital-based horror directed by an eccentric German auteur, she never would have imagined that she would find herself gravitating towards her friendly co-star Rosenthal (Adam Pearson) who has neurofibromatosis. Schimberg weaves a spellbinding narrative about representation and exploitation without giving any straightforward answers and the end result is darkly comedic yet challenging.

Schimberg confidently blurs the lines between fantasy and reality
