Join us for a free screening of My Way To Olympia
Spend your lunch hour at Panhandle PBS's main studio on Thursday, November 13th at Noon with a free public screening of the POV film, My Way to Olympia. This event is a collaboration with the Amarillo College Common Reader Program and with POV, PBS's award-winning nonfiction film series.
Who better to cover the Paralympics, the international sporting event for athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities, than Niko von Glasow, the world's best-known disabled filmmaker? Born with severely shortened arms, von Glasow serves as an endearing guide to London's Paralympics competition where his own stereotypes about disability and sports get delightfully punctured. Official Selection of the 2013 Berlin International Film Festival.
Lunch snacks will be provided, but attendees are also welcome to bring their own brown-bag lunch.
