Documentary Trailer

I really want to see this documentary, CinemAbility.

From the trailer, it looks like a very good starting point for discussing disability depictions on film. I wonder how deep the analysis goes? Does it stop with noting the familiar villain / hero cliches, or does it tease out more complex ideas? I also wonder if they look at television, too. I really think you have to.

Hopefully, this will come to Netflix or some other streaming service soon.
