Animated sequence repeating the words “My disabilities are your stares.” A mixture of live action, animation, and collage illustrating attitudes to different kinds of disability.

Other texts include phrases like “It’s about Separations”, “It’s about Entanglements and Separations”, “Epilepsy fits down between the cracks”, “It’s about Isolation”, “It’s about finding a space, finding an identity”, “It’s about you and me”, “Don’t define me by your incompetence”, etc. Credits.
