Film and Discussion: “All For One”
American Center at the U.S. Embassy in Moscow invites you to a special film-showing of a documentary “All For One” by Jon Alpert, winner of 11 Emmy Awards for News and Documentary Programs and one National Emmy for Sports Documentary.
People with disabilities are the largest minority in the United States and in Russia with 57 million Americans and 13 million Russians living with a disability. Most of us will become disabled at some point in our lives. Still, disabled people continue to be underrepresented or stereotyped in media. All For One: Media Enabled Musketeers puts cameras directly in the hands of people with disabilities, letting them tell their own stories. Like the characters in the famous Dumas novel, those in All For One worked together for the common good, wielding cameras for sabers. 35 Russians and 13 Americans collaborated to create works about everyday issues to empower themselves, educate the public, and provide more opportunities for people with disabilities. The participants featured in the documentary strive to represent their unique positions. These include films about accessibility, finding love, confronting prejudice, and following dreams. They star a little person, blind person, persons with paraplegia and quadriplegia, a stroke survivor, and a young man with autism. Dozens of Russian and U.S. journalists also participated.
The screening will be followed by Q&A and discussion with the American Center in Moscow representative.
The rights to screen these films are generously provided by American Film Showcase, a program to bring award-winning contemporary American documentaries, feature films and animated shorts to audiences around the world, offering a view of American society and culture as seen by independent filmmakers. Funded by a grant from the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered by the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts, the Showcase highlights the value of film in fostering understanding and cooperation, dialogue and debate.
