Description The ReelAbilities Film Festival is dedicated to sharing the human experience of disability through art and film. "Hearts of Glass" follows the tumultous first 15 months of the operating of Vertical Harvest, a state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse that provides local crops as well as employment for people with disabilities. Plants and people grow together in this intimate look at innovation, inclusion, and communities. If you are interested in attending Sarah Longley will register you for a ticket.
