by Shaun Manning on April 10, 2013

Simi Linton, whose memoir My Body Politic is a perennial favorite at the Press, has announced an upcoming documentary on “the avant-garde of disabled artists and radical thinkers.” Invitation to Dance is directed by Linton and Christian Von Tippelskirch, produced by Metuffer Films with grants from several prominent cultural organizations.

From the website:

At age 23, Simi Linton was injured while hitchhiking to Washington to protest the war in Vietnam. Suddenly a young disabled college student, she confronted discrimination she couldn’t have imagined before. Simi emerges as a resourceful activist, and in time realizes that love, sexuality, and dance can once again be central to her life.
