Chained for Life 15

Fri 15 – Sat 16 Nov


★★★★ – Eye for Film


Aaron Schimberg’s dextrous, darkly comedic and hugely entertaining film-within-a-film challenges the issue of cinematic representation of disfigurement and disability without offering simple resolutions.


Simultaneously empathetic and sardonic, Chained for Life’s multi-layered meta narrative stars Jess Weixler as Mabel, a well-intentioned Hollywood actress cast in a horror movie about physical disabilities who struggles to connect with her friendly co-star – a man with neurofibromatosis named Rosenthal (Adam Pearson, Under The Skin).


Dir: Aaron Schimberg
