On Tuesday, December 13th, the Teen Press ventured down to the Laemmle Music Hall Theatre in Beverly Hills for the premiere of the amazing documentary BEYOND THE CHAIR. It's an story of perserverance fueled by a dream--how a man dependent on a wheelchair for his mobility took himself on a world-spanning journey. Andrew Shelley, heart as big as mountains, decided to step outside his comfort zone--and safety zone--and head across the world to visit New Zealand, Thailand, Cambodia, and India. On his own.
On hand for the Red Carpet Premiere were an equally amazing collection of boundary-pushing folks, as well as family, friends and supporters. Teen Press reporters Alex and Sarina, on their first assignment, talked with more people in one night than most of their teammates do in a month. Check out the BEYOND THE CHAIR website for the trailer, and the Facebook page for the progress of the film. And HERE for the excitement of that night...
Here Robert--Dr. Robbins on the original CSI--gives Sarina & Alex some history and insight about people with disabilities in films, both in front of and behind the camera.
