Thought provoking & moving.
12 August 2019 | by shenagh-govanSee all my reviews

I am still thinking about the screening of Acceptable Damage by Fiona Whitelaw. A moving, thoughtful, challenging study on invisible disability. Authentic, inclusive storytelling which is representative of the society we live in. It effectively 'holds up a mirror' to reflect where we are failing people. Food for thought.
