Disablism, infrequent strong language

Drawing from her own family archive of home videos, Ella Glendining’s extraordinary documentary journeys from her formative years in the village of Elsing to a globe-spanning canvas.

Born without hip joints, and short thigh bones, Ella sets out on a personal quest to meet other people who share her disability and learn about their experiences in a systemically ableist world.

A multi-award winning, galvanising documentary of incredible power, Is There Anybody Out There? is a life-affirming celebration of disability and the wonderful diversity of humanity, and a vital condemnation of pervasive, prevailing ableism in the modern world.
