MORROW, Ga. -- Clayton State University's Disability Resource Center will kick off Disability Awareness Month by showing the Academy Award-nominated documentary Murderball.

The movie will be shown at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 1 in room 272 of the James M. Baker University Center.

According to a release from Clayton State:

This amazing documentary chronicles the lives of rough-and-tumble rugby players, who also happen to be wheelchair users, on their quest for Olympic gold. The movie follows the hard-hitting action on the court, where players smash each other with reinforced wheelchairs, and off the court. These amazing men will make you think differently about the word "disability."

Tameeka Hunter, who works in the Disability Resource Center, calls Murderball "an unflinching look at disability, sexuality and Olympic competition."
