Director: Mark Dissette
Digital presentation - There's Still Hope for Dreams - A PHAMALY Story, a full-length documentary, follows a theatrical group comprised entirely of disabled performers. Despite their disabilities, PHAMALY takes on productions that were originally choreographed for people who can move both feet and arms, dance freely across the stage, who can see, hear and talk. Actors with Parkinson's, Cerebral Palsy, blindness, paralyzation or amputations, plus many other disabilities, who would not otherwise have a chance to perform on stage, have an opportunity to exhibit their talents through PHAMALY. Taking you on their journey, this documentary will appeal to a global audience due to it's inspirational message of hope, by watching these performers strive to overcome major challenges to pursue their dreams.
