Location la: Redstone Theater
New York City Premiere with director Lisa France in person
Dir. Lisa France. 2017, 90 mins. DCP courtesy of Array. With Gabriel Cordell. Set amidst 3,100 miles of open road and small towns, Roll With Me, the powerful and inspirational film being released by Ava DuVernay’s distribution company Array, chronicles recovering addict and paraplegic Gabriel Cordell’s momentous journey to become the first person to roll an unmodified wheelchair across America. Directed by Lisa France, the documentary bands together a crew of unlikely co-conspirators, each battling their own issues. Meaningful and motivating, Roll With Me shares intimate narratives of PTSD, homelessness, unemployment, family estrangement, and sobriety struggles. The film begins as a challenge to push an unmodified wheelchair from California to Cordell’s hometown of West Hempstead, New York, but along the way Cordell’s exploration of endurance establish ties that speak to our common humanity.
