Premiering for the first time anywhere, “Plain Jane The SHOCKUMENTARY” will be shown at 8pm and 10pm on November 17, 2012 at Standing Rock Cultural Arts’ North Water Street Gallery in Kent, Ohio.
The film is a “shockumentary” in that common notions about disabled people are turned upside down and backwards. Part interview, part music video, part animation, and part reenactment, this film explores new territory in the realm of human experience; a triumph of the will as Jane overcomes obstacles and destroys popular myths.
Jane was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a condition which is manifested by extremely brittle bones. At birth, Jane had twenty-six broken bones and was not expected to live 3 hours. By the time she was in high school, she had broken 200.
With a large dose of dark humor, this independent film by Tom Trainer documents the eccentric life of a woman with a disability, Jane Hash. Due to adult themes, children will not be permitted. For more information go to www.plainjanetheshockumentary.com
