Not Everybody Can Do Everything (excerpt)


Filmed over 14 years in Manhattan, Not Everybody Can do Everything is an intimate portrait of three residents of Joselow House, a residential home for the blind and severely visually impaired and with developmental disabilities. The house is organized around the effort to assist the clients to gain control over their lives, and to be as self-sufficient as possible. Not Everybody Can do Everything exhibits the relationship of the filmmaker with these residents and offers an insight into a group of adults whose actual experience of disability shows to be more complex and dynamic than is usually understood.

(The film has been shown in several iterations, the excerpt on CIRCUIT is from a 152 minute cut)
