Always passionate about film, I studied them while earning a B.A. in English at Concordia University, Montreal. Years later, while completing graduate work in disabilities and English at Montclair State University, I was fueled by the idea that watching movies -- a multi-sensory experience with the ability to convey not just the passage of time, but different societal, cultural, and environmental perspectives -- was a subliminal way to increase the understanding of disabilities, disorders, diseases, and other human challenges.
So I looked back at decades of films I’d viewed to identify those with challenges. I compared them to the films listed on aggregated, unreliable databases. Then, after finding no comprehensive site with an ongoing, curated timeline of films from 1890 to current releases that categorized films my way, I launched www.reelives.com.
