Goal of the event:
The aim is to raise awareness of disability. Movie is quite painful to watch because it points to the fact that disability is a life-ending problem rather than something you can not just survive with but thrive with.
Short description of the event:
“Will Traynor became quadriplegic after a traffic accident. The movie depicts 30-some-year-old Traynor confined to a wheelchair, paralyzed from the chest down. Traynor, despite the wishes of his mother and his caretaker, decides to go through with his intention to die.”
The ultimate message of this movie is that a disabled life is not worth living. But that's not true. All of us must understand that there's always another way. And that doesn't make them bad or worse than other ways. Things are bad right now, sure, but they don't have to be. Things are the way they are- it's how you handle them that determines the outcome.
