Are you interested in hosting a screening of a Rooted in Rights documentary?  If so, screenings are a great way to bring people together and spark discussions on various topics and issues that impact the lives and inclusion of people with disabilities.  Screenings are great for university and college curriculum, community meetings and conferences, and best of all, they’re free!

Rooted in Rights have three documentaries available for screening:  Bottom Dollars, On the Outs, and The Right to be Rescued.

Bottom Dollars

“How would you like to work for two weeks, and come out with a $6 check?” That’s the reality for almost 250,000 Americans with disabilities who are paid below the minimum wage. Bottom Dollarsexposes this exploitative system and offers solutions to end segregation and discrimination against workers with disabilities.

On the Outs: Reentry for Inmates with Disabilities

On The Outs: Reentry for Inmates with Disabilities is a short documentary produced by the Amplifying Voices of Inmates with Disabilities (AVID) Prison Project. On The Outs follows three inmates with various disabilities, including vision impairment, brain injury, and mental illness, through all stages of the reentry process. The documentary depicts each person’s experience at three points: in prison prior to release, on their release date, and life on the “outs” after release.

The Right to be Rescued

The Right to be Rescued is a short documentary that tells the stories of people with disabilities affected by Hurricane Katrina. Released days before the 10th anniversary of the storm, our goal is to make emergency planners aware of the specific needs of people with disabilities and push them to alter their disaster plans to make sure those needs are met.
