> > > > Framed: Interrogating Disability in the Media

BFI Publishing (1997). Edited by Ann Pointon, Chris Davies with a preface by Paddy Masefield, Framed offers a lively introduction to disability portrayal in film and television, raising questions of whose images, views, and voices reach the screen.

Disabled actors and producers talk about the barriers that still exist for those who want to work in the industry; critiques from within the disability arts movement are linked to the potential for creating new images.
