“This will be the ‘final’ screening of Real Live Angels, at least in terms of the academic research portion of the project,” said Weber, who is conducting media effects research on reaction to the film for his graduate studies at the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord College of Journalism and Mass Communication. “This film is the fruition of a life in journalism, visual storytelling – and being a human being in this complex, and often misunderstood, human community on earth. I am excited to put this project in front of friends, family and those interested in the messages of inclusion, volunteerism and breaking down barriers for – and to – the so-called disabled population.”
A Facebook event invitation to the screening can be found at https://www.facebook.com/events/1455862964635975/ . Additional events are scheduled for Oklahoma City (March 8), Dallas (March 22/23), as well as southern California during the week of March 10 (dates TBD). After Weber gathers his research on the project, he will begin presenting the documentary to film festivals and a broader audience in an effort to bring the positive message about a camp in north Texas, Camp Summit, that has been serving people with disabilities since 1947.
