From the Inside/OUT! is a moving account of confinement and liberation based on a remarkable art show of the same name. Vancouver artist Persimmon Blackbridge collaborated with 28 artists who survived large institutions for people with developmental disabilities to create a provocative, painful yet often joyful art installation about the journey from segregation and isolation to freedom in the community.

Boschman's video is a revealing tapestry of images, spoken memories and first-person accounts gathered and created for the art exhibit. While recording a unique and powerful artistic collaboration, it contributes to an important chapter in Canada's social history-the move to community inclusion for people with disabilities.
