Realscreen presents three clips from Victor Buhler’s disability focused documentary A Whole Lott More, which is having its world premiere at Hot Docs 2013 in Toronto.

The film focuses on Lott Industries, which for years has excelled at manufacturing small car parts in Toledo, Ohio.

All 1,200 Lott employees have developmental disabilities, yet the company competes with traditional non-disabled businesses to achieve the highest quality ratings. When the U.S. auto industry crisis hits, however, Lott’s market is wiped out, threatening the livelihood of workers at the plant.

The film, which is supported by the Britdoc Foundation, first pitched at the Hot Docs Forum two years ago, and enjoyed its world premiere at the Canadian festival on Sunday night (April 28). It plays again tomorrow (May 1) at TIFF Bell Lightbox, and on Saturday (May 4) at the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema.

Check out three clips from the film, exclusive to realscreen, below:
