Patrice Barrat, Rita Lahlou
2009 - 53 min - DV Cam - Couleur - France

In the spring of 2007, Omar wrote to madmundo to ask for help in promoting the Rights of Handicapped People. Thus started the story of the film “Omar:Do You Accept My “Handicap?” What education for handicapped people? What work for them? What access to things of everyday life? How does society view them? And most importantly, how do they view society... What Rights do they have?

A film and multimedia approach to stir debate and reflections. On the planet today, one family out of four includes an handicapped person...
