    Disability Reframed presents a free screening of the documentary film Benda Bilili!, followed by a lively audience discussion.  The screening will be held March 2, 2013 from 2pm to 5pm at the Salvation Army Kroc Community Center, 650 Dudley Street, Dorchester.

    Benda Bilili! is a 2010 documentary that follows a group of homeless musicians with disabilities living on the streets of Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  They form a musical group called Staff Benda Bilili and eventually reach a worldwide acclaim.  "Benda Bilili" translates as "look beyond appearances" in Lingala, one of the languages of the Congo.  Come to share in their infectious music and compelling personal visions.  This film's soundtrack is in Lingala and French, with English open captions.

    This is a scent-free event.  Out of consideration for people with environmental illness and/or multiple chemical sensitivity, please refrain from using perfume or other scented products.  For sign language interpreters or other accommodations, please contact the Boston Commission for Persons with Disabilities by February 22 at 617-635-3682 (voice) or 617-635-2541 (TTY) or e-mail disability@cityofboston.gov.
