Story of the film
“Living with Disabilities” has been a Hamburg association for people with disabilities for 60 years. The goal: “Participate in the life of our city.” In 2008, as part of a series of events, we were commissioned for various long-term project documentations.
Working very closely with the participants, the possibilities and limits of the practical implementation of different pilot phases needed to be presented over a period of several years.
In this context several films were realised:
2008 Living like others,
2009 vocational training for people with severe disabilities,
2010 We are Schanze,
2011 Personal budget.
Over a long period of time, we laughed and cried together with the participants, explored boundaries and sought closeness. Places that we supposedly already knew, we saw with new eyes, everything – completely barrier-free.
