Becoming Bulletproof

Disabled people from across the US take leading roles in a Western

Becoming Bulletproof Can a team of disabled people produce a slick feature film? Apparently so. Once a year actors from across America meet at Zeno Mountain Farm to produce and star in their own film. The project aims to transcend stigma and stereotype, to empower those with disabilities to be creative on an equal platform to those without. This crafted documentary profiles their most ambitious project to date: a sprawling western epic.
