Challenging the stereotypes

"These actors don’t worry about how they look as much as professional actors. They have accepted the way they look and that’s that,” says Lena Koppel, the Swedish director of The Importance of Tying Your Own Shoes and It’s All About Friends, two feature films starring people with special needs that are being shown in the Reframing Reality Festival, which opened at the Jerusalem Cinematheque on October 25 and runs through October 29. It is sponsored by Shekel, an organization that provides services to people with special needs.
