Holiday Special Featuring Acclaimed Filmmakers Peter and Bobby Farrelly Part 2

Transcription: Speaker 2 (00:00):  Authentic representation in the entertainment industry of people with disabilities is something that the Ruderman Family Foundation has been involved with for some time now. While there have been some improvements lately, such as at the Sundance Film Festival, making Crip Camp, a movie about summer camp for people with disabilities in the 1970s and the Disability Rights Movement, a major piece of their festival this year. And Zack Gottsagen presenting an award at the Oscars in February. Hollywood is still lagging behind when it comes to the inclusion of people with disabilities.  Speaker 2 (00:40):  All Inclusive, a podcast on inclusion, innovation, and social justice, with Jay Ruderman.  Jay Ruderman  (00:51):  I’m Jay Ruderman host of All Inclusive. And we have with us today, two people who’ve always made inclusion for people with disabilities an important aspect in their movies. Acclaimed filmmakers and Morton E. Ruderman Award in inclusion honorees, Peter and Bobby Farrelly.  Jay Ruderman  (01:06):  I’m also excited to announce that we’re running a giveaway right now to spread some joy during this season. From December 14th to January 15th, we’re giving away one iPad per week for five weeks. That’s five iPads. To enter you simply go to my Twitter, Instagram or Facebook at Jay Ruderman. Follow me and comment on the weekly contest post with the hashtag all inclusive iPad contest. Enter to win. We’ll draw a random winner each Friday. So enter now. You must be 18 or over and in the United States to participate.  Jay Ruderman  (01:43):  You know one thing Michelle Obama said fairly recently is that most of us get to know people who are not like ourselves through TV and film. And so the medium has tremendous power, but you said it’s a business. So, you sort of have like a chicken and the egg, you want to get actors with disabilities who have some notoriety so they can become more regular in film and TV, but they have to get a shot for it to happen in the first place. So I give you guys a lot of credit because you’ve given a lot of people their start and you know that this is an issue that society needs to be more well aware of. Can you talk a little bit about your influence on other people in the industry? Now that you’re speaking out about this and you’ve spoken out for a while, but how do you influence others who are making movie and TV?  Peter Farrelly (02:32):  Well, I can’t say we’ve had a huge influence. I think that we’ve done what we’ve done and we’ve been involved in media access, like I’ve passed on, tried to get Canadian people involved. I’ve done that kind of stuff. We’ve opened ourselves up to it. But from this point forward, we were going to do more because it time has come and we really didn’t get as active as we should have. We did what we did, but we didn’t think about the when we weren’t making movies and that’s why we’re doing this thing tonight with you, because we want to, I hate awards. I don’t like getting awards. But this one is an important one because we’re drawing attention to something that nobody’s talking about which is people with disabilities not being allowed in the door for not just entertainment jobs, but jobs across the world.  Peter…
