Shattering the Silences Series:
Fixed: The science/fiction of human enhancement
A haunting, subtle, urgent documentary, FIXED questions commonly held beliefs about disability and normalcy by exploring technologies that promise to change our bodies and minds forever. Told primarily through the perspectives of five people with disabilities: a scientist, journalist, disability justice educator, bionics engineer and exoskeleton test pilot, FIXED takes a close look at the implications of emerging human enhancement technologies.
The purpose of the program is not to just reframe how we think about disability but provide opportunities to explore the new disability studies minor.
