‘Powerful, eye-opening and original.’
‘Incredibly thought provoking. It powerfully challenges the watcher to address their own misconceptions about people different from themselves.’
‘I really enjoyed it. It’s quite upfront and in your face which I like a lot. And the premise is great!’
Lee Ridley – Lost Voice Guy
About the film
Katerina’s first film as writer and director, Speak to me listen to me is an angry film. It’s a deliberate provocation, challenging people’s complacency about their own impact on disabled people. The title is the answer to the question disabled people hear so often: “What can I do?”
Jay – Ed Clements
Lou – Imogen Roberts
Kate – Kate Caryer
The film explores people’s response to disability and how it can create barriers for disabled people; the central image of the film is that of a disabled person being imprisoned by other people’s fear of their disability, and being released by understanding.
