In 2007 while traveling in South Africa, Cory Greenbaum (SAR HS ’12) was involved in an automobile accident that resulted in paralysis. At the age of 13, Greenbaum began his life in a power chair, facing the tremendous challenges of quadriplegia. Nonetheless, he later moved to California to attend Stanford University, eventually embarking on a career in banking at JP Morgan in New York City.
However, he realized his true calling was creative storytelling, and Greenbaum is now pursuing film production and developing his own screenplays.
In “Glimpse,” Greenbaum has captured a unique and intense picture of the courage and creativity demanded of life with quadriplegia in a short film made for the Easterseals Disability Film Challenge (EDFC) (https://www.youtube.com/watchv=JgvdA2Jzw_s ).
Winning would bring his film to a broader audience at the HollyShorts and/or Newport Beach Film Festivals. Winners will be determined by views, likes and shares at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgvdA2Jzw_s. #GLIMPSE @DisabilityChall.
The EDFC will announce its winners in the coming weeks, and the “Awareness” category winner will receive a special screening at the 2019 Newport Beach Film Festival.
