Freedom machines( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in Undetermined and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Freedom Machines, a PBS Special, dramatically explores the concept of "disability" through the intimate stories of adults and children who are using modern technologies to change their lives. The film asks: if people have access to the tools that can help them be fully functioning citizens at home, at work and in school, then where is the disability? Is it the people themselves or a society that has yet to make accomodations to enable its largest minority group - 54,000,000 Americans with disabilities - to participate in the American Dream? Freedom Machines looks at our beliefs about disability through the lens of technology access and use. The program explores how human experience and technological innovations are outpacing social policies through dramatic personal stories. Among them are Susanna who is beginning her college career, 38 year old Floyd Stewart who was paralyzed in mid-life while raising four children; 92 year old Gladys who is determined to overcome a hearing loss; and high school student Latoya Nesmith who dreams of becoming a translator at the U.N. Fifteen years after passage of the ADA, Freedom Machines is a riveting reflection on the status of life of America's largest minority group: 54 million people with disabilities. "As a university administrator and former judge, it is my hope that this remarkable film will be shown to faculty, staff, and students on campuses throughout this country." - LaDoris H. Cordell, Special Counselor to the President for Campus Relations (Stanford University)
