Documentaries about disabilities

Disabilities documentaries reveal inspiring stories of people with disabilities and rare conditions. You can watch a series about wheelchair dancing, or see how deaf actors perform in a Russian theatre. Hear the story of a blind and deaf psychology professor, Aleksandr Suvorov, or meet women with dwarfism exploring their talents. Disabilities documentaries show how impairments don’t stop those determined from conquering mountaintops and winning Paralympic medals. Learn about ‘butterfly people’ and those living with brittle bone disease.
