Theatre of Hope

In Soviet times, people confined to heavy, badly-designed wheelchairs were rarely seen outside their homes. Better, more practical products are available these days and the disabled have become more mobile. Vadim Fisson is from St. Petersburg, one of a new breed of Russians to prove that folk in a wheelchair can enjoy life and career in abundance. Successful and talented stage director, he manages to weave an atmosphere of joy and creativity around him. Get closer to his world, in The Theatre of Hope documentary.
