On Richard’s Side is the third film in Andrew Wiseman’s moving trilogy following the challenges facing Richard Croft, who was born with a severe intellectual disability. His father has recently died and now his mother Deidre is trying to find long term accommodation for him. The film gives us some insights into what it means to live with a disability. Greg spoke to Andrew about the film and his experiences of filming Richard over a thirty year period.
