YDAN Hosts: Defiant Lives Screening – 196 Oxford Street

YDAN is hosting an event, sponsored by the WA Department of Communities and supported by the office of Senator Jordon Steele-John, for the WA community to celebrate the International Day of People with Disability.

Join us for a screening of the groundbreaking documentary “Defiant Lives”, which introduces the world to the most impressive activists you’ve never heard of and tells the story of the rise and fight of the disability rights movement in the United States, Britain and Australia.

This film features exclusive interviews with elders (some now deceased) who’ve led the movement over the past five decades, the film weaves together never-before-seen archival footage with the often-confronting personal stories of disabled men and women as they moved from being warehoused in institutions to fighting for independence and control over their lives.

Defiant Lives is a triumphant film full of extraordinary characters who put their lives on the line to create a better and very different world where everyone regardless of impairment is valued and can participate.

This will be followed by a panel discussion with leading WA human rights and disability activists, including Senator Jordon Steele-John himself!

Bring your friends and family, stick around for free food and drinks, socialising and networking! This is a non-alcohol event and we will endeavour to meet all dietary requirements and access needs – please register in advance and let us know how we can support you.

Free Film Screening of Defiant Lives with Q&A – David Williamson Theatre, St John Street, Prahran

As part of Stonnington Youth Services’ Expressions Series, we are excited to announce a free screening of the film Defiant Lives. The aim of this event is to acknowledge and celebrate our diverse community, especially those living with a disability.

‘Defiant Lives’ tells the story of the rise and triumph of the disability rights movement and introduces the most impressive activists you’ve never heard of.

Please join us at 6pm to enjoy some light refreshments and music before the screening at 6:30pm. A Q & A will take place at the end of the film with a special opportunity to talk with the Director, Sarah Barton.

Defiant Lives uses exclusive interviews with elders (some now deceased) who have lead the movement over the past five decades, and combines this with rarely seen archival footage sourced from Australia, the United States, and Britain.

The story begins in the big institutions where disabled people were routinely imprisoned for life. From the 1960s onward, small numbers began to escape, aided by allies who came to work and help, and ended up battling a system of brutality and dehumanisation. Once freed from there imprisonment they found a world full of barriers, so they set about dismantling them one by one.

This is a triumphant film full of extraordinary characters who put their lives on the line to create a better, and very different world, where everyone, regardless of impairment, is valued and can participate fully.

This film has sub-titles (CC) and we will have AUSLAN interpreters for the Q&A. The venue is wheel chair accessible. Defiant Lives has been rated PG. This event will be fully supervised drug, alcohol and smoke free.

Please contact us if you have any special needs that require further assistance.
