Justine doesn’t speak. She communicates through looking, gesture and the body language of her movement and interactions. Justine observes the rhythms of her day giving a unique portrait of the experience of a vivacious young woman living with severe neurological disorders in the run-up to her milestone birthday.
A screening of Pratap Rughani’s award-nominated documentary exploring the world of unspoken communication between people of different neurologies. The film was debated at the 2015 London Human Rights & Cinema Conference, is selected for the World Cultures ‘Poetics and Politics’ of documentary seminar at the University of California and is screening at festivals, including the 2015 London Short Film Festival. This screening is followed by a discussion, led by Head of College, Natalie Brett and Dr Pratap Rughani, examining the art of crossing bridges in documentary and raising core questions of the ethics of consent and the representation of disability.
