All among the Bison – An inclusive vision for tomorrow synopsis
Cody and Steve form a very unlikely pair. Cody has a herd of wild bison, and Steve leads individuals with physical and cognitive disabilities in outdoor recreation. When they met they asked themselves: what if we designed an adaptive bison viewing experience? “All Among the Bison” is about polar opposites meeting. On the one hand the symbol of strength, wilderness, speed and possibly danger, and on the other hand a symbol of vulnerability. Put these two together and the prospects are frightening, yet for Cody and Steve, it’s a natural association — one that sparks awe, humility and great faith that an inclusive and biodiverse future is very possible.
Endless Abilities – Synopsis
In the spring of 2012, four best friends drove across the country in search of adaptive sports for individuals with physical disabilities, and lived to tell the story in a feature documentary film. From rehabilitation patients to Paralympic athletes, our cameras captured the reality of broken boundaries and common goals among all who are active. We went rock climbing with the blind, played soccer with quadriplegics, and swam with those with muscular dystrophy, to name a few. Through our journey, we learned that sports really are the great equalizer, unifying people of all abilities on a level playing field.
