DISABILITY REFRAMED: A COMMUNITY FILM SERIES PRESENTS:
Children of a Lesser God
Saturday, January 12, 2013 — 2 to 5 PM
Cambridge Citywide Senior Center
806 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square, Cambridge
Directed by Randa Haines and starring William Hurt, this 1986 romantic drama is notable in that it marked the film debut for deaf actress Marlee Matlin, who won an Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance. Only 21 years old at the time, Matlin is the youngest actress to receive the award and the only deaf Academy Award recipient in any category. An adaptation of Mark Medoff’s Tony award-winning stage play, Children of a Lesser God received praise from the Deaf community for its unusually realistic portrayal of conflicting ideologies on speech and deafness between two people in a romantic relationship.
