ReFramed - Disability in Media
ReFramed Episode 4
September 28, 2021
You're now on episode 4, and it's time to re-introduce Robyn Lambird (they/them, she/her) to the series! Jason and Robyn chat all things inclusion, disability representation, and welcome Ming Luo (she/her) as their special guest. Ming brings an array of experiences with her, including lived experience of being blind.
The trio discuss the following media pieces:
The Fundamentals of Caring... Another Hollywood film that casts a non-disabled person as a character with disability. This time, though, they frame disability experiences in a much more realistic and light-hearted way. The story follows a young man with disability as he gets a new direct support person, and goes on his first road trip.
In The Dark... Suggested by Ming, this series is hilarious in the wrong (but so right) kind of way. The story follows a young woman (who happens to be blind), as she tries to uncover who murdered one of her friends. It's a great show, but once again, a non-disabled person is cast in the role.
