Stephen J. Wampler Foundation

Years ago, Stephen Wampler made a commitment to find a way to enable children with disabilities to take advantage of and embrace the outdoors. Born with a severe form of cerebral palsy, he set out to climb the biggest rock face in the world.

Krista Zielke from the Cincinnati ReelAbilities Film Festival shares some details of the events that begin February 27 at various locations around town.

One of the films to be spotlighted in this year’s ReelAbilities Film Festival, kicking off February 27, is Where Hope Grows, the fictional account of an out-of-work baseball player whose life is impacted by a local boy who happens to have Down Syndrome. The film’s writer and director, Chris Dowling, talks with Howard Wilkinson about the genesis of the movie, which was filmed in Louisville, and being part of the ReelAbilities Film Festival - organized by LADD and presented by Macy's.
