Superfest, “Terminal Device,” Living with Amputation

terminal-deviceWe talk with Ross Turnbull, the creator of the movie Terminal Device, an autobiographical essay and an inquiry into cinematic representation. Refracted through pop cultural images, the director tells his story as a man with a hook watching movie images of others with this particular prosthesis.  He’s in the studio with Alex Locust, also an amputee and one of the organizers of Superfest, the bay area’s premier disability film fest.

SUPER FEST

Produced and hosted by Adrienne Lauby.  Audio Editing by Sheela Gunn-Cushman.
