The 'R' Word - US Premiere 12/1/12, Hollywood

Inline image 1

Before the holiday madness takes over completely, mark your calendar for the U.S. Premiere of "The 'R' Word"—an extraordinary documentary film that explores the experience of having a developmental disability (or loving someone who does). 

Rarely, do we see the experiences of our children and families reflected so directly and clearly in the media. Winner of the 2012 TASH Positive Images in the Media Award, "The 'R' Word" will be screened at this special—and FREE—public event.

Special thanks to the Achievable Foundation, Frank D. Lanterman Regional Center, Tarjan Center at UCLA, and the Canadian Association for Community Living for their kind and generous support.
