Director Amber Sealy

Today our upcoming film Out of My Mind was announced by our partners at Disney. The news also included director Amber Sealy and star Phoebe-Rae Taylor, as well as mention of producers and partners coming together to tell this coming-of-age story.

Based on Sharon M. Draper’s best-selling and award-winning novel, the film will tell the story of 12 year old Melody Brooks, a girl with cerebral palsy.

"Out of My Mind advances Participant's mission of reaching audiences with incredible stories that celebrate difference and challenge preconceived notions about ability," said Robert Kessel, executive vice president of Narrative Film at Participant. "We are thrilled to work with Disney and the outstanding creative team to bring this story to life."
