80% Disabled

2016 – 25 minutes.

Mari had been in a wheelchair for his entire life, and people have been telling him that his dream of becoming a film maker are admirable, but unrealistic. He explores the theme ‘disability and work’ in his own documentary.

80% Ongeschikt (80% Unsuited) is a humorous portrait of society’s struggle with disabled people. Mari aspires to be self-sufficient, independent from government payment. He explores the possibilities and boundaries of working with a disability. What can modern society with its focus on self-reliance offer him?
