Presented by Hot Coals Productions

A scathing and painful look at the benefit system for the disabled in the UK and its horrific consequences.

‘Indefinitely’ is part of  Talking Bodies which takes the form of a collection of seven short films. Inspired by Alan Bennett’s classic Talking Heads series, we want to bring the series up to date, making it relevant to today’s rich and diverse society by shining a spotlight on those who are often side-lined.

This project will tell the surprising, shocking, sad and funny stories of the Deaf, Disabled and Neurodiverse through a series of seven Talking Heads style monologues.

Today, you will be able to see the first two instalments of these films.
