    How Does It Feel is a meditation on performance, self-expression, (dis)ability, and the power of art. At age 58, Kazumi has decided to use his singing voice to channel his cerebral palsy (CP). As Kazumi draws from his exuberant, poignant and painful experiences, performer and teacher Fides Krucker guides him to embrace his inner artist. Kazumi's one-man show features songs like Smokey Robinson's "Tracks of my Tears" which take on new and unexpected meaning in this moving account of transformation through the power of song.

    2011. 34 minutes.

    “We’re beautiful, the whole gang. We’re special,” says Jean of the 15-odd employees at The Artisan—a workshop employing people with intellectual disabilities. Jean is the self-described “handyman and best-looking” member of the group. A moving celebration of difference, The Artisans captures daily life at an organization where the workers are as courageous as they are colourful.

    2018. 51 minutes.

    Art and activism are the starting point for a funny and intimate portrait of five surprising individuals with diverse disabilities. Packed with humour and raw energy, this film follows the gang of five from B.C. to Nova Scotia as they create and present their own images of their disabilities.

    ***************************************************************************

    Ce long métrage documentaire sur l’art, le militantisme et les personnes vivant avec un handicap propose un portrait à la fois intime et amusant de cinq artistes étonnants, y compris la réalisatrice Bonnie Sherr Klein. Avec un humoriste, une poétesse, un danseur et un sculpteur, Klein se rend dans diverses provinces canadiennes et aux États-Unis afin de créer des autoportraits aux multiples facettes. Un regard tendre et humoristique sur la passion de l’art et la vie avec un handicap, ses complications et ses richesses inattendues.
