ReFramed Episode 4 - Ming Luo - 'The Fundamentals of Caring' + 'In The Dark'
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.
