Join us for this special event screening of What If It Works? and Amar (Moon). This session features a post-screening panel with filmmakers discussing representation of disability on screen.
A colourful romantic comedy all about having the courage to love and be loved. Adrian, an irrepressibly chirpy tech nerd, has OCD. Grace, a beautiful street artist, has Multiple Personality Disorder. As new neighbours in an edgy, graffitied suburb of Melbourne, they find themselves in therapy with the same psychiatrist and crash into each other one afternoon. As Adrian becomes aware of a threat to Grace lurking in the form of a fellow street artist ‘Sledgehammer’, Adrian knows he should help Grace. But he struggles to break free of his OCD in order to do it. Will he overcome his biggest fear? It’s a love story that seems impossible. But what if it works?
