Portrayals of People with Disabilities

  • Iris Center at Vanderbilt University: The ways in which individuals and groups are portrayed in popular media can have a profound effect on how they are viewed by society at large. This tool represents an attempt to catalogue the representation of people with disabilities in motion pictures. Many of those representations are accurate, many are inaccurate, and some are even offensive. Their inclusion in this tool is intended to stimulate discussion and should by no means be considered an endorsement of their accuracy or appropriateness. (Note: This catalogue is for use as a reference in your search for a given feature film or documentary. No actual movies are accessible through this tool.)
