For the last 12 years, two organisations, Junk TV and Carousel have been supporting film-making by the learning disabled community.
They have set-up the Oska Bright film festival to showcase this work and also take the films on tour, along with a master class. Read more about this on the Oska Bright Digital Space.
For The Space, the Oska Bright Committee has specially selected the best films from their film festival. The committee says Thug Dance by Alison Short from Mind the Gap “is a funny film! It’s about how body language can be perceived in different ways. At the end you get to see who they really are.”
