2006_CJWRAP_testThe University of Toledo Disability Studies Program will screen the award-winning film “Aaltra” Wednesday, Oct. 23, at 7 p.m. in Memorial Field House Room 2100.

Benoît Delépine and Gustave de Kervern star in this irreverent road movie about the hatred of two neighbors set on destroying one another when a sudden agricultural tractor accident leaves them both paralyzed and strangely drawn closer to one another.

The film has received many awards, including the London Film Festival Fipresci Prize and Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival best actor award (Delépine).

“Aaltra” has been widely praised for its understated physical comedy and defiant humor that is not politically correct.
