ReelAbilities Film Festival

Closing Night! Discussion to Follow!

Directed by Adam Irving, USA, 86 min, Documentary, In English with Open Captions
The remarkable true story of Darius McCollum, a man with Asperger’s syndrome, whose love of transit has landed him in jail 32 times for impersonating New York City bus drivers and subway conductors. Although Darius has never damaged any property or hurt anyone, he remains imprisoned on Rikers Island. Darius’ story embodies the criminal justice system’s failure to channel the passions of a mentally challenged man into a purposeful life.

Discussion to follow with film subjects Sally Butler, Esq., lawyer for Darius McCollum; and Liz Loebman, Forensic Social Worker.
