The Power of the Weak

Film Premiere in Washington DC:

This documentary by German filmmaker Tobias Kriele, tells the story of Jorge, “Jorgito” Jérez, born in Cuba in 1993 during the special period with Cerebral Palsy. The movie shows how a society structured to support human development can make the disabled powerful. Provided with care from birth by Cuba’s health care and education system, Jorgito is now a self-sufficient, independent young journalist contributing to Cuban society. Tobias Kriele and Jorgito will be at the viewings in D.C.
