BFI at Home- Girls on Film – Diversity in Ability with Ruth Madeley and Rachel Griffiths – Premiere
Girls On Film is a film review podcast that looks at film from a female perspective. Join podcast host, critic and broadcaster, Anna Smith, to discuss diversity in ability on screen. Our guests, Ruth Madeley and Rachel Griffiths, have both recently made industry headlines with their work around casting actors with disabilities.
Ruth Madeley talks about her recent role in Verisimilitude, in which this wheelchair-using actor teaches an able-bodied actor how to act as if he had disabilities.
Award-winning actor Rachel Griffiths speaks about directing Ride Like a Girl, which is based on the true story of Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup, which features Down’s Syndrome actor Stevie Payne, playing himself, as Michelle’s brother
