    Name: Free Film Screening~Intelligent Lives
    Date: October 13, 2018
    Time: 2:50 PM - 6:00 PM PDT
    Event Description:

    From the award winning filmmaker Dan Habib comes 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 of America.
    Intelligent Lives stars three pioneering young American adults with intellectual disabilities  - Micah, Naieer, and Naomie - who challenge the 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 United States.  
    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.
    Together we can create a world where everyone's abilities and talents are valued.
