Kristi is differently-abled but refuses to act or be treated any differently. Representation matters, it's time the conversation on differently abled changes as Kristi Hansen shows us her act of normality.
Actress Kristi Hansen challenges a lifelong stereotype as an amputee by excelling to new heights in her latest role.
As a star on the rise, Kristi Hansen has taken on many roles that have helped her define where she is in her career today but her latest performance is helping change our perception of 'hero'. Kristi is differently-abled but refuses to act or be treated any differently. Limitations only exist if we let them, and Kristi proves that every day by taking barriers and putting them behind her- or in the case of this film… below her. Her version of normal is different than most because she is different than most; she's spent many years cultivating her vision of this word and what it means for her world. Representation matters, it's time the conversation on differently abled changes as Kristi Hansen takes on the lead role in The Act of Being Normal.
Representation matters, which is why our team showcases both experienced and inexperienced members of our industry. We all have something to learn from each other. The goal of this team is to provide learning opportunities for everyone.
The Act of Being Normal's main purpose is to showcase that we are only capable of doing what we set our minds to. Differently-abled or not, sky is the limit. What better way to change the conversation than to show the ups and downs first hand.
It wasn’t long ago that Tamarra Canu was given such phenomenal opportunities in film to learn from the best and help out whenever the situation needed it. This film is an exercise to support and lift the team up. It will give some of them the chance to find their first places in film so that they can plot out their next steps as filmmakers.
We plan on releasing a series of behind the scenes teasers before the launch of the film to build numbers and keep the show top of mind with our followers. These webisodes will show exclusive footage of Kristi's training for the role and her daily routine. Director Tamarra Canu also plans on seeking out gym advice from Kristi, in hopes she can complete more than one push up by the end of the shoot.
Director Tamarra Canu is proud to be launching a photo-blog series on inspiring Edmonton women. The first instalment will involve an exclusive interview about Kristi’s new role in The Silver Arrow and how it’s changing the way she thinks about her future.
We reached out to Adaptabilities in hopes they knew someone that had an interest in the film industry but weren’t sure where to start. They are proud to support our Production Assistant, Jon, and of course the film by sharing it’s promotional pieces with their 1200 followers.
