In partnership with DaDa Fest, Liverpool’s cutting edge Disability and Deaf Arts Agency, we’re screening Yo Tambien as part of the Turning FACT Inside Out film programme. It’s the uplifting story of Daniel, a recent university graduate with Downs Syndrome, and heavy drinking Laura who spends her nights in crowded clubs and bars. On Daniel’s first day of work in the Department of Social Services, he meets Laura and immediately falls in love and despite their apparent incompatibility they strike up a friendship that transforms both of their lives.

Turning FACT Inside Out aims to encourage conversations on important topics and questions facing society and our film programme brings together a series of movies that look at themes including race, gender, disability, the economy, technology and culture.

Over the next two months we will be working with DaDa Fest, Liverpool Pride and Sheffield Doc/Fest on a series of films, discussions and Q&A’s. For more information on the exhibition and our film programme, please visit the Turning FACT Inside Out Project page.

Yo Tambien is showing on Wednesday 17 July, at 6.30 and it will be followed by a discussion event hosted by DaDa Fest. Tickets are on sale now from the Box Office, by phone or online.

The film is in Spanish with English subtitles. We are providing an option to listen to the subtitles which will be spoken live in English. Please turn up 15 minutes before the film showing to receive hearing equipment. Contact DaDa Fest if you have any enquiries.

DaDaFest is an innovative disability arts organisation based in Liverpool, delivering the Festival and other arts events to promote high quality disability & deaf arts from unique cultural perspectives.
