INTELLIGENT LIVES FILM
Award-winning director, Dan Habib, presents "INTELLIGENT LIVES,"
a catalyst to transform the label of intellectual disability
from a life sentence of isolation into a life of possibility for
the most systematically segregated people in America.
Presented by Adams Wells Special Services Cooperative. For more information, call (800) 824-5880.
INTELLIGENT LIVES stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities – Micah, Naieer, and Naomie – who challenge perceptions of intelligence as they navigate high school, college, and the workforce. Academy Award-winning actor and narrator Chris Cooper contextualizes the lives of these central characters through the emotional personal story of his son Jesse, as the film unpacks the shameful and ongoing track record of intelligence testing in the U.S.
INTELLIGENT LIVES challenges what it means to be intelligent, and points to a future in which people of all abilities can fully participate in higher education, meaningful employment, and intimate relationships.
