INVITATION TO DANCE will be shown at the Margaret Mead Film Festival in NYC on Saturday October 25th, 2014!

In 1971, Simi Linton was injured while hitchhiking to Washington to protest the war in Vietnam. Still in college at the time, she suddenly confronted discrimination she couldn’t have imagined before she began using a wheelchair. Outspoken, thoughtful, and impassioned, Simi quickly became a resourceful activist. Invitation to Dance brings to light the efforts Simi has made to ensure rights for people with disabilities – from the time of her injury to her present day efforts to bring an end to discriminatory taxi service – and to maintain her capacity for love, sexuality, and dance.

Co-presented by Reel Abilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival
