targeted: the truth about disability hate crime




It took over a year to make, but finally my documentary on disability hate crime was screened on BBC 2. I was pleased with the response, and though I hate to blow my own trumpet, I think it's a good film.

"Britain today is a tough place to be disabled. This film reveals the abuse and aggression faced by disabled people in everyday life, from verbal name-calling to violent physical attacks. Made by disabled filmmaker Richard Butchins and featuring a wide range of testimony from survivors themselves, it asks why this happens."
