Award-winning disabilities documentary began at UCCS

A production that debuted at UCCS was recently honored with an Award of Merit from The Accolade Competition.

“Invisible Voices: New Perspectives on Disability” debuted at UCCS as part of a Theatreworks production in Oct. 2009 and was later turned into a documentary film by Randy Dipner, Colorado Springs. The document captured the original stage production and provides a window into the complex worlds of six individuals who have adapted to and thrived with their disabilities.

The Accolade recognizes film, television, video, and new media professionals who demonstrate exceptional achievement in craft and creativity, and those who produce standout entertainment or contribute to profound social change. Entries are judged by highly qualified professionals in the film and television industry. Information about the Accolade and a list of recent winners can be found at

“Invisible Voices” is now available as a two-disc set along with the documentary “Reflections on a Promise” which examines not only the history of the groundbreaking Americans with Disabilities Act legislation, but also considers what the ADA has accomplished, and how all Americans can help build on its successes.
