Walk With Me

Walk With Me is a short film about accessibility and how simply taking a walk can be a statement about belonging. The students at Beverly Public School, located in downtown Toronto near Chinatown, all have special needs. My eight year old son Teddy is a student there and for three years he had a wonderful teacher named Nicki Campbell. She provides a voiceover that recounts her experiences strolling through the neighbourhood with her class. She responds to assumptions about her students' abilities and argues that being out in the world is essential to both her students' educations and that of the general public. As the film shows, simply by visiting city parks and crossing busy streets, these children become a part of the urban landscape just like everybody else.
