- When Billy broke his head --and other tales of wonder /
- When Billy Golfus, an award-winning radio journalist, became brain injured in a motor scooter accident, he became one of the forty-three million Americans with disabilities, the nation's largest and most invisible minority. But this video, as he says, "ain't exactly your inspirational cripple story." It's a documentary with attitude, which will entertain, enlighten, and even enrage its viewers. Disability is not just a medical fact, it is also a political reality. In this irreverent, first person road movie, Billy meets disabled people around the country, and witnesses the strength and anger that have been forging a powerful disability rights movement in America. This breakthrough film blends humor with politics, and individual experience with a chorus of voices, to explore what it is really like to live with a disability in America, where pervasive discrimination and bureaucracy too often keep people with disabilities trapped in a labyrinth of government rules and legislated poverty.
