Camera As Witness, Graduate School of Education, and the Mechanical Engineering Design Group present:

I Am Able: After surviving the genocide in Rwanda, Frederick Ndabaramiye was the victim of a brutal retribution attack. Left for dead in the jungle, he was found by two girls who took him to the hospital. His miraculous survival was just the beginning. Frederick slowly learned to live again, re-honing his motor skills through painting. After years of recovery, uses his story to empower others going through similar struggles. Through painting, cycling, and storytelling, Frederick now seeks to change people's preconceptions of what it means to be 'able' by encouraging us to focus not on perceived “disabilities” but on the grit that each of us have.

(After viewing this 13 minute film, FIXED: The Science / Fiction of Human Enhancement [61 minutes] will be screened.)
