Deep sea diving ... in a wheelchair

Title:
Deep sea diving ... in a wheelchair
Speaker:
Sue Austin
Description:

When Sue Austin got a power wheelchair, she felt a tremendous sense of freedom -- yet others looked at her as though she had lost something. In her art, she conveys the spirit of wonder she feels wheeling through the world. Includes thrilling footage of an underwater wheelchair that lets her explore ocean beds, drifting through schools of fish, floating free in 360 degrees.
