A video clip scripted and acted by persons with a disability aims to challenge perceptions by giving a direct voice to their thoughts and feelings. The script was developed by the actors themselves, most of whom have visible and non-visible impairments.
Fi Kliemna (In our own words) aims to bring the voices of disabled people where inclusion usually begins: the education setting. Commissioned by the Commission for the Rights of Persons with Disability (CRPD), the video has been doing the rounds among Malta and Gozo’s secondary schools, with the actors running a live question and answer session on disability and disability rights with the students after each viewing.
Through the video, a number of persons with disability have created a lighthearted sketch with serious undertones about the insensitive comments and questions that they encounter on a daily basis.
