“Belt, Braces & Disability 3”

This film, produced by Troy, Rachel and Daniel, was two years in the making, partly due to the pandemic. It features three remarkable people each of whom has shown that disability can be an inspiring sphere of human life just as it can be difficult, bullied and disadvantaged. Lisa says,

“It’s shocking the standards that disabled people have to put up with and in this day and age, but to be honest it wasn’t that surprising to me, as someone who cares for a person with a disability. I loved the film’s life affirming message.”

One participant, Ralph, said: “it’s a shame we have to fight so hard to get our voices heard.”

It is the third in the “Belt, Braces & Disability” series dating back to 2010&2017. All three largely autobiographical films were directed by Chris Haydon.

This film features
  • former Paralympian Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson
  • campaigning Baroness Jane Campbell, a legendary fighter for disability rights … both sit in the House of Lords on the Cross Benches
  • former bank manager Mike Newman who was born blind, became a bank manager and now runs a charity for disabled people to try their hand at driving a racing car on a racetrack. He set world land and water speed records in excess of 200mph and 100mph respectively.
It launched on World Disability Day Saturday 3 December 2022.
