A Reel Abilities Screening of "A Whole Lott More" The Stamford J presents a special screening at The State Cinema, 990 Hope Street, Stamford, in partnership with Reel Abilities: NY Disabilities Film Festival. More than 1200 workers with developmental disabilities work at Lott Industries, a car manufacturing company in Toledo, Ohio. But, as the auto industry declines in neighboring Detroit, Lott has been threatened with closure – and has only twelve months to reinvent and, hopefully, save itself. The film explores the narrow range of employment available to people with developmental disabilities and details the incredible contribution they can make in the working world when provided with the right support. 6:30 p.m. Meet and greet with representatives from local special needs organizations. 7:00 p.m. Screening. 8:30 p.m. Panel discussion. $12 Adult; $6 Student.
