‘Powerful, eye-opening and original.’

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?”

Cast

Jay – Ed Clements

Lou – Imogen Roberts

Kate – Kate Caryer

Themes

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.
