STREET TALK VIDEO

Social judgment, ageism and bullying part of enduring pattern of discrimination against SA people with disabilities

In this episode of Street Talk, we speak to a group of people about how the challenges of having a disability don’t stop at the physicalities. We speak about how the judgement of communities, peers, and the workplace create their own hurdles.

This special episode of Street Talk TV was brought to you by The National Film and Video Foundation. “Enter the Frame” is a special mentorship program that focuses on making filmmaking accessible to all and helping those with disabilities get their voices heard and seen on screen.

This film was produced by Street Talk.

Street Talk is a groundbreaking television series aired weekly on community television. From grassroots to the establishment, our engaging programmes expose the lived realities and uncensored views of ordinary South Africans.

Street Talk was launched in 2008 and is a non-profit organisation.
