Synopsis

Variations is a portrait of three artists set apart by their own definition of ability. Dancer Kris Lenzo, musician Chris Foreman, and artist Riva Lehrer reveal the process behind their art as they talk about the influence of their lives on their practice. The film seeks to convey varied human experiences and promote the belief that disability is a natural part of human diversity and takes pride in its heritage and culture.
