Synopsis

Following Flame is a documentary on the cover band Flame from upstate NY, whose talented members have disabilities. The film focuses on the stories of the band’s members to illustrate the power and importance the band has had in their lives and to shed light on how people with disabilities are often treated or viewed in the United States. Using interviews with the band members, their families, the band manager Maria, sound manager George, and disabilities advocate Larry Roberts from the Finger Lakes Independence Center, the film shows the state of disability rights in the U.S. along side the history and success of Flame.

For more information, tune in to filmmaker Kristin Leffler on WICB Radio as she discusses the process of making our documentary.
