To mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities on 18 November, the United Nations, in partnership with BRITDOC, presents the UK premiere of “A Whole Lott More”, a film by Victor Buhler. The subject of this award-winning documentary is disability and employment.
Disability. Employability. Everyone has the right to work – A Whole Lott More is the story of Kevin, TJ and Wanda, all with developmental disabilities. Though set in Toledo, Ohio, the questions raised by the film have strong parallels with issues faced by the UK, where over a million disabled people who would like to work are currently unemployed. Are we offering the right support? Can we do more?
The premiere will feature special guest Ade Adepitan MBE for discussion after the film. Born 27 March 1973, Ade is a British television presenter and a bronze medalist paralympian basketball player.
