Hearing directly from people with disabilities about their lives is vital to good research and effective policy. In this series of short films we learn from Rachel, a nurse with disability from the United Kingdom about the obstacles she has overcome in her career; we discover why Faustina, from Tanzania, feels that wheelchairs are so important to people with disabilities; Mia, from Lebanon, shares her experience of discrimination in education; and we hear about the efforts of Feliza, from Bolivia, to promote accessibility in her home town. Each film relates to a different chapter of the World report on disability, launched on 9 June 2011 in New York. Blind aboriginal musician Geoffrey Yunupingu Gurrumul has supplied the soundtrack to the films.
