E64: “The Film Industry Is Ableist” w/Melina Nakos

By DGWL / 2022-07-11
Posted in

In this episode, Melina joins Marybeth to discuss life on the set as a queer, disabled director and producer. How can we make more sets, stages, and venues more accommodating for PWDs? How is this translated in the hiring or casting process? Where have we made headway and what needs more work?

“I believe storytelling is inherently a mode of activism and being able to stand, through my work, for inclusion and positive representation is something that drives me in my whole career… Your voice matters. Creatives who are disabled need to be 10x as good as their abled counterparts to get half the opportunities. Through all of that, the thing that has saved me is knowing, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I have something to say and a story to tell that is vital for audiences to hear.” Listen for more!
