What is the main cause of the activity?: 
Description of the event: 
On Sunday, 12th of May we organised a "Cineforum" in which we saw seven short films about people with disabilities. The main purpose of the activity was to raise awareness this topic, to know how the life of people with disabilities is and how we can help them as well as break the stereotypes that we usually have.
The short films were specially chosen for this event and we divided them by themes so we could have time between them to discuss about the main topic of each short film as well as some interesting facts about them.

Some of the short films were in english and some in spanish and all of them had subtitles in order to be suitable for everyone.

Additional Comments / Outcome of the activity: 

It was a really good activity because we had the chance to see not only really good films but also to discuss about people with disabilities and try to be more empathetic. We also had the oportunity to know the point of view of a deaf person as one of the participants was deaf which of course was really interesting.

If you want to know which short films we saw just ask us about it, we will be more than happy to share with everyone these fantastic films!
