We are pleased to announce that Wheelchair Diaries: One Step Up is the recipient of the 2013 Visions Award from the Utopia Film Festival  held Oct. 18-20.

Wheelchair Diaries: One Step Up is about Reid Davenport’s journey to investigate Europe’s lack of accessibility after being discouraged from studying in Italy because he has cerebral palsy and uses a wheelchair.  Along with his difficulties traveling throughout Europe, three Europeans with disabilities he meets share stories that put disability in a light rarely shone in the media.

The film has recently fostered an increased level of media attention with a feature article about Davenport’s excursion in the Washington Post, a story that made its way onto NPR and the Best Short Documentary Award from the Awareness Film Festival.
