A blistering critique of Hollywood representations of disabled characters, Code of the Freaks gives the mic to some of Hollywood's most incensed and ignored critics - actual disabled people Code of the Freaks is also a reference to the disability community itself, which in spite of a history fractured by institutionalization, isolation and segregation from the rest of humanity, has emerged to build a political and cultural movement.
