When we began making this story, we wanted to share a different perspective of the world. It has been said that: “Disability is a taboo for society and sex is also.” If we mix them (together), we can break the system. We want to make people question themselves and think about what they should or shouldn’t do, in the situation that is presented to them in our film.

Rosario Perazolo Masjoan, Lead Writer

“4 Feet: Blind Date” is an Argentinian virtual reality film that explores disability and sexuality, inspired by lead writer Rosario Perazolo Masjoan’s own experiences as a disabled person. The idea for the film emerged after creative producer Ezequiel Lenardon attended a TED talk by Masjoan about her disability activism. Lenardon then reached out to Masjoan with the idea to make a film based on her experiences to normalize disability. Eventually, the project evolved into a fictional story about an 18-year-old girl in a wheelchair named Juana, inspired by Masjoan’s own experiences. Actress Delfina Diaz Gavier plays Juana in the recreation of Masjoan’s story, and even uses Masjoan’s own motorized wheelchair in the film. The film is the first in a series of VR experiences about Juana.
