two new disability movies

May 6 is a popcorn-eating day at Pushing Limits with two films by people with disabilities.

“When I am Not Alone” is an award-winning movie about the trials and triumphs of Sam Durbin, a transgendered man. Sam lives with a developmental disability, a seizure disorder, traumatic brain injury and mental illness. He is a public speaker on behalf of a disability center and the author of “You’re Not the Boss of Me.”

Tomorrow, at 2:30 pm on 94.1 fm or we’ll preview this remarkable film about a remarkable guy, which was produced by up and coming director Rhianon Gutierrez. Gutierrez, herself, lives with severe to profound hearing loss. In addition, we’ll hear about Joe Stutts, a guy who worked a shovel in a coalmine and wanted to drive the heavy equipment. He only had one problem. He couldn’t read. The struggle Joe Stutts waged to improve his own life has opened the doors for tens of thousands of people with dyslexia.
