Film Festival 2017

On Thursday, March 9, 2017, 6-8pm you are invited to join us for our 8TH Annual Disability Services & Legal Center Film Festival at the Summerfield Cinemas in Santa Rosa. The festival will highlight two multiple award-winning films; Getting Up: The Tempt One Story and Down Under Mystery Tour, stories about overcoming disability through the power of perseverance, humor, and creativity. Films will inspire you and make this evening truly enjoyable.

Join us at the Summerfield Cinemas, 551 Summerfield Road in Santa Rosa, CA 95405. Tickets are $10 and purchased at the door; no one will be turned away due to lack of funds. For information call Lake Kowell at 707-636-3063 or

Getting Up: The Tempt One Story - After being diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs Disease in 2003, fully paralyzed LA artist Tony TEMPT Quan, a legendary LA graffiti artist, social activist, and publisher gets his creative voice back through an unlikely friendship with a perfect stranger- Mick Eberling. Mick organized a crew of hackers and artists to invent a low-cost, open source DIY device that would let Tempt create art with his eyes. Getting Up is a documentary about the life of artist Tempt One and the quest to give him back his ability to do art. It asks the question, How does a fallen man get back up?

Down Under Mystery Tour - This comedy follows an intellectually-disabled film director, who wants to make a TV show featuring two blondes traveling around Australia, but he is forced to use disabled actors instead and must resort to sabotage, violence, voodoo and murder to get them off his set.
