Handicap International invites you to a private VIP reception featuring Goodwill Ambassador Jessica Cox, and filmmaker Nick Spark, followed by a screening of the award-winning documentary Right Footed.
Right Footed introduces you to Jessica Cox, who never allowed herself to believe that she couldn’t accomplish her dreams despite being born without arms. She learned to type with her toes and drive a car with her feet, and in 2008 became the first armless person to receive a pilot’s license. Right Footed chronicles Jessica's work to overcome adversity, and follows her as she becomes a mentor for children with disabilities and their families, and a disability rights advocate with Handicap International.
Drinks and appetizers from 5:30 pm.
Right Footed begins at 6:30 pm, and runs for 82 minutes.
A Q&A will immediately follow the screening.
This event will be ASL interpreted. Right Footed will be shown with closed captions.
