Listen With Your Feet

Martha Eleen, Gabe West and Steve Topping

1998, 09:12 minutes, colour/B&W, English


Listen With Your Feet is a documentary by and about a young man who loves to ride the subway. Gabe and his friend and supporter, Steve, are both listeners who are moved by sound, motors and vibration. Gabe uses a wheelchair and Steve uses a skateboard. Together they inhabit a space that defies the normal conditioned response to disability. Gabe's extraordinary presence on the subway is described from his point of view and offers us a glimpse into the profound meaning of being in an ordinary public place.
