Imperfect, a new documentary following a professional company of disabled actors who put together a production of the musical Chicago, will premiere at the Slamdance Film Festival. The new documentary will be screened from January 27 to February 6.
Imperfect is the story of artists… who live and perform with the uniqueness of disability, and who have therefore historically been deprived of their place in the spotlight. The documentary chronicles a unique company of actors who have all sorts of disabilities – from spinal cord injury to Parkinson’s disease, cerebral palsy to autism – as they attempt an unprecedented take on comedy musical “Chicago” by Kander, Ebb and Fosse.
Capturing the raw, honest stories of actors inside the production process and outside the theater in their daily lives, Imperfect reveals a rare behind-the-scenes look at talented performers who are pushing to succeed as professional performers. , regardless of the obstacles.
Imperfect shatters worn-out notions of disability and affirms the human condition…in all its uniqueness.
Imperfect will be screened in competition, in the Documentary Features section of the Virtual Slamdance Film Festival 2022.
The documentary is directed by Regan Linton and Brian Malone. Produced by Linton, Malone and Davis Coombe. Executive produced by Mike Fordyce. Photography and editing by Brian Malone.
