Disability advocates model a grand experiment in independent living.Watch Trailer
Body & Soul: Diana & Kathy, directed by Academy Award-nominee Alice Elliott, is a look at an unusual, symbiotic relationship between two people some would call profoundly disabled. Two of the country's most remarkable advocates for people with disabilities, Diana Braun, who has Down Syndrome, and Kathy Conour, who has cerebral palsy, met three decades ago and vowed to fight to live independent lives. Told in an intimate vérité style, the film is a story of a compelling and creative friendship, as Diana and Kathy model a grand experiment in independent living.

While [the film] will find a place in academic library collections supporting disability studies and rehabilitation, social work, and related health sciences fields, most everyone will benefit from viewing Body and Soul: Diana and Kathy.
