Other People's Stories

Other People's Stories recounts the brutal murder of a disabled woman from Pennsylvania; a narrator tells of her own sexual masochism; a young woman orgasms to a room of anonymous onlookers. Other People's Stories positions viewers somewhere between the narrator's intense identification with the victim and the safety of their respective modes of viewership, encouraging fluid and multiple access points. A daring examination of ableism and the visceral pleasures of spectatorship itself, Other People's Stories brings with it a new and crucial understanding of disability film.
