Celebrate ability diversity in your community with a screening of THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON


what's the film about?


RUNTIME: 93 minutes


Zak, a 22 year old with Down’s Syndrome, lives in a retirement home, spending his days watching wrestling with his elderly roommate. After a daring escape attempt, he meets Tyler, a man on the run and searching for a simpler life. 

What follows is a Huckleberry Finn road movie adventure through the deep south, as the two unlikely companions attempt to evade capture and fulfil Zak’s dream of becoming a pro wrestling superstar.

THE PEANUT BUTTER FALCON is a jubilant, contemporary folk odyssey taking progressive steps in lead character casting, and showcasing performances that warmly welcome audiences into their modern Mark Twain-style adventure.

Film is a powerful medium for change. It shares stories, making people feel less isolated, and ultimately drawing like-minded people together.  Film Outreach’s Disability Celebration Screening Kit aims to increases public awareness, understanding, and acceptance of people with disability and celebrate their achievements and contributions.
