Loading Docs 2018 - Hear Me Out

Web (Full Length) – 2018

Mojo Mathers was New Zealand's first deaf MP, and faced considerable hurdles just doing her job. In this short documentary from the Loading Docs series, Mathers talks about her time as an MP and her desire to ensure deaf and disabled people can fully engage in democracy in Aotearoa. In 2017 Mathers drafted the Election Access Fund Bill, to provide a contestable fund for those with disabilities who wanted to run for Parliament. In May 2018, Mathers' Bill passed its first reading with unanimous support. Director Jason Boberg has direct experience of disability. 

I don’t want to talk about what I need to participate. I just want to get on with the job and hope, that it is never as hard for someone else.
– Former Green Party MP Mojo Mathers
